Hosted in 2018 by the Montana Native Plant Society in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service & the Montana Natural Heritage Program, Montana’s biennial Plant Conservation Conference treats emerging issues in applied botany for managers, scientists, students, and plant enthusiasts. For the 10th Conference in 2018, the first day of the meeting was a symposium on Montana’s threatened plants, including the potential ESA listing of whitebark pine and the delisting of water howelia. Abstracts for the presentations are available in the 2018 Conference Proceedings.
