Seed Ecology Ⅳ:seeds and future
The Fourth International Society for Seed Science Meeting on Seeds and the Environment; Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China, June 22-26, 2013.
The theme of Seed Ecology IV is ‘Seeds and Future’. Seeds link past, present, and future, being a natural legacy and a human treasure. When climate changes and human disturbances bring tremendous threats to vegetation and the environment, it is seeds that confer us a great hope to maintain a bright future. This meeting will aim to create bridges between seed ecology and plant conservation, restoration ecology, and global change research. Better understanding seeds and making best use of seeds are our joint efforts, which can lead to a good many of human benefits and a sustainable and green globe.
