If you are a CFPACS Member or former member, you should have received an email regarding the itinerary for the fall meeting.  If you are not a past or present member, but are interested in joining and/or attending, please PM me at your earliest convenience.  CFPACS was able to get a block of rooms reserved at a special group rate in the Miami area for our attendees.  The details of how to lock in the group rate are included in the email sent earlier, but you will need to reserve a room by Monday, August 31st, 2020.  The tentative itinerary is shared below:

If anyone still needs to reserve a room, I was advised that the date above (August 31st) has been extended to include this week.

If you've sent an RSVP, an email will be sent later this week with further details for this meeting.  If you plan on attending and haven't sent an RSVP, please do as it will assist greatly with planning for the visit to Montgomery and the socially distanced private garden cookout.  CDC guidelines, including masks and social distancing, will be observed at these events.

Fall Meeting Wrap Up

Friday Plant Sales: Thank you to @Jeff Searle and the rest of the nurseries in the Miami area for welcoming our membership with open arms.

Montgomery Gardens: Thank you to @Noblick, @Mandrew968 and the rest of the Montgomery staff for providing a fantastic tour and for donating palms and a large amount of seeds to our seedbank.  Additional thanks to Andrew Street for inviting us to a palm yard sale after the tour.  The 46-year old Lodoicea maldivica was one of the highlights of the tour, as was the Nypa fruticans.

Private Garden Picnic: Special thanks to @waykoolplantz for the invite to explore his private garden!  With the Tahina Preservation Project fresh in everyone’s mind, it made a great time to see four of them in a single garden.  Greg gave us an awesome tour and dug out some cycads for the group to take home with them.  The food was great, but the company was even better!

Next Meeting: For those who like a long window to plan, our Holiday meeting is currently slated to take place on Saturday, December 5th, 2020 at a private garden in Micco, FL.  Since the planning for this meeting is still in its infancy, look for a calendar event, a thread for that meeting, and emails to go out at some point later this month or early next month.

Seed Bank Update: You won't want to miss out on the new species donated by Montgomery!  The list below is due to be posted to our website momentarily and is subject to change.  Order and payment information is available at: http://cfpacs.com/org/seeds-for-sale/

      SFPS Guest, Monday OCT. 19, 2020 - 7:20PM - REGISTRATION REQUIRED (SFPS Members & Non Members Invited)   Click here to register. - http://bit.ly/SFPS2020OCT   "Defaunation in the Anthropocene" presented by Dr. Mauro Galetti, Director of the Gifford Arboretum (University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida)     Dr. Mauro Galetti is a tropical ecologist at the University of Miami and Director of the Gifford Arboretum. His current research centers broadly on the effects of animal extinction on key ecological, evolutionary and ecosystem processes. Current understanding of the effects of animal extinction and the cascading effects in terrestrial ecosystems has been historically based in relatively simple food webs. In contrast, the effects of human-induced trophic cascades in hyper-diverse complex ecosystems, such as tropical rainforests, are largely unknown.

      Dr. Galetti has been studying seed dispersal by fish, lizards, birds, and mammals, including extinct megafauna. He sees the extinction of large vertebrates during the last 50,000 years as a continuous human-driven impact on the biodiversity on Earth. Dr. Galetti is fascinated by rainforests and has been working in the Atlantic forests of South America for many years.

      About 90% of all tree species rely on animal- dispersal and as a result, Dr. Galetti is trying to understand how the loss of seed dispersers will affect plant recruitment and how this ultimately will affect climate and other ecosystem functions.

      Defaunation, known as the local, global or functional extinction of animals, has become a major biodiversity threat. In this talk, Dr. Galetti will take the audience to the myriad of consequences of animal extinction in these 3 scales: local, global and functional. His main focus here is to introduce cascading consequences of losing animals for plant reproduction (seed dispersal) up to the ecosystem scale (carbon storage). Finally, Dr. Galetti will be presenting his new work on the effects of defaunation in the Caribbean Island ecosystems.
