The International Parasitic Plant Society is pleased to host the first IPPS Online Seminar Series. International scientific exchange on the basis of regular society meetings and conferences is hindered by the Covid19 pandemic. The IPPS Online Seminar Series offers Society members an opportunity to learn about the most recent developments in parasitic plant research from leading scientists in the field, discuss with them and exchange with other members on a regular basis.
With the exception of the first one, the IPPS Online Seminars will be held every first Wednesday of the month from May through December 2021. The Zoom link can be accessed from the IPPS Members-only Area.
We are happy to announce that the former and current presidents of the IPPS will open the seminar series on May 12, 2021 at 3:00 PM GMT (8:00 AM Los Angeles, 10:00 AM Bogota/Brasilia, 11:00 AM New York/Santiago, 4:00 PM Abuja/London, 5:00 PM Amsterdam/Berlin/Cape Town, 6:00 PM Nairobi/Tel Aviv, 11:00 PM Beijing, 12:00 AM Tokio, 01:00 AM (next day) Canberra).
