SEPTEMBER 19th, 2020 - 2 Ticketed Sessions - (10:00 AM - 1:00 PM) & (1:00 PM - 4:00 PM)

SFPS Members have made some nice donations... at least 20+ genera will be available in limited quantities as this is a ticketed and time restricted / slotted event. 

Various other local societies will be there as well such as The Rare Fruit Council International (RFCI), Tropical Flowering Tree Society (TFTS), Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society (TFEPS) and various local orchid societies from Miami & Coral Gables. Fairchild Garden will also be selling plants... first event of its kind in a while which is why I wanted to share.

We welcome anyone under 40 years of age to join for $1.00 membership fee, everyone else you're still welcome to join.

With respect, it only took Palm Talk admins 3 days to approve my account.  Soooooo blame who??

You seem to not be on the SFPS e-mail list?

Event was announced via e-mail / social media various times.  We all did what we can, sorry to not make it earlier as I do not live on the forums. Our email list is still open to non members.

If you need to stay informed considering joining the membership and support the society. - https://bit.ly/SFPSemailmc

As for the FTBG website,  not sure what we, or I can do ATM. 

The SFPS is fully independent not sure we need any comparison, especially during this pressing time.  I mean nothing from my reply, but I felt your short comment required some sort of succinct answer. If you're already an SFPS member and not receiving communications please reach out and contact the society or our Secretary listed on the website. - https://www.southfloridapalmsociety.org/join.shtml

      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.
