Welcome to the Twelfth International Symposium on Pollination (ISPXII)
The Twelfth International Symposium on Pollination (ISPXII) will be held at Kirstenbosch Gardens in Cape Town.
Kirstenbosch is one of the nicest botanic gardens in the world, it is in the Table Mountain world heritage site and floral kingdom (fynbos) that is unique to one country. ISPXII will be on the edge of the Garden, a few meters from the Garden gate. Entrance is free for ISPXII delegates. Use this opportunity to see Cape flora and pollinators. Pre and post Symposium trips will be offered. Around Cape Town you can walk in the mountains, take historic tours or go wine tastings.
The Symposium will cover a range of topics, including floral signals, Apivectoring, variation in diet and diet width in bees, non-Apis pollinators of crops, crop pollination by honeybees, pollination of tropical crops, traditional knowledge and pollination, citizen science, climate change & land use effects on pollinators and pollinator taxonomy.
This Symposium will bring together individuals from universities, industry, non-profit organizations, and several stakeholder groups to engage in a dialogue about the pollination.
We look forward to welcoming you to ISPXII and Cape Town.
