iMOSS 2017

June 22-24, 2017

Hawaii Convention Center

The international molecular moss science society (iMOSS) aims to foster research on and scientific exchange about non-seed plants. Historically, the annual MOSS meeting started out as a meeting of the Physcomitrella community. However, iMOSS emphasizes a broad interest in “mosses”, including liverworts and hornworts, other non-seed plants such as lycophytes and ferns, and also streptophyte algae because of the rising interest in comparing them to land plants. In essence, iMOSS nurtures research and discussion on flagellated plants, i.e. photosynthetic eukaryotes that have not lost (sperm) motility. The concept of the Japanese word “Koke”, applied to tiny plants and plant-like organisms, is what we refer to as “moss”.

Organizing committee: Stefan A. Rensing (president) and Stuart McDaniel (vice president), Aruna Kilaru (local organizer)
