Call for Articles: 2019 Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation

Dear Friends and Members of United Plant Savers,

The time has come to collect new articles for our annual Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, to be published in Spring 2019. We invite all of our members and supporters to tell their stories and share their knowledge and experiences in this upcoming issue. If you have participated in research or have stories or news of interest about “At-Risk” or native medicinal plants, please share with our membership. We also welcome sanctuary stories from our Botanical Sanctuary Network.

The theme for the Spring 2019
Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation
is Voices from the Land.

WHAT ARE THE STORIES OF PLANT CONSERVATION THAT ARE ALIVE IN YOUR COMMUNITY?

 

UpS is celebrating its 25th year in 2019 and we want to highlight the work of indigenous communities towards the stewardship of medicinal plants. We also want to highlight those stories from the land itself that speak to us.
