Our largest training workshop (in terms of different research communities) to date has been organised by the South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and hosted at Kirstenbosch on 9-11th of October 2012. Participants included researchers from South Africa, Ethiopia, Spain and the UK, working on various families: Sedges, Grasses, Hypoxidaceae, Asparagaceae subfamily Scilloideae and the Aloes, day lilies & grass trees family.
At the end of September 2011, the Biodiversity Synthesis Center (BioSynC) at the Field Museum in Chicago hosted a synthesis meeting for researchers working on Carex. They were joined by representatives from EOL and eMonocot.
