The Center for Conservation and Biodiversity will host a one-day meeting to honor the life of our late colleague Les Mehrhoff. The day will be broken into sessions focused on four areas of interest to Les: New England botany, invasive species, rare and endangered species, and the future of biodiversity in the Northeast. Each session will include a set of three or four invited talks. In addition, the program will include a brief sketch of Mehrhoff's life, tours of UConn's state-of-the art biological collections and greenhouse facilities, and an open mike session at the end of the meeting. There will be an optional evening gathering at a nearby restaurant, where attendees will be able to gather and reminisce.
