The Spanish Botanical Society (SEBOT) welcomes you to the 1st Spanish Botanical Congress to be held at the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Toledo on September 8-10, 2021.

This Congress represents a milestone for Spanish Botany, since it is the first time that Spanish and foreign researchers from all the botanical specialities integrated in SEBOT and its federated scientific associations will come together in the same forum, along with anyone interested in the topics covered in the talks. The Congress is an excellent opportunity to learn about the advances in the various disciplines, exchange experiences, share botanical knowledge and promote actions in favour of biodiversity conservation.

The Congress will take place from September 8 to 10, with a previous day (September 7) for workshops, plus a final day (September 11) dedicated to a choice of excursions: Cabañeros National Park (Ciudad Real–Toledo); the Talavera region and Sierra de San Vicente (Toledo); Castilla-La Mancha Botanical Garden (Albacete).

The Congress will coincide with the 10th Congress of the Spanish Society of Plant Conservation Biology (SEBiCoP), the 4th Congress of the Spanish Geobotanical Society (SEG) and the 3rd Conference of the Spanish Association of Aerobiology (AEA). It will also include working groups and the organizational meetings of SEBOT-federated associations, and the 1st General Assembly of SEBOT.

The Congress will be available in a hybrid mode, both on site and online. All conferences and communications will be presented at the Congress venue, but anyone wishing to follow the sessions remotely can register for the online mode. The Congress will feature the following general topics:
• Aerobiology and Palynology
• Biodiversity Management
• Biogeography
• Biological Invasions
• Conservation Biology
• Ecology
• Ethnobotany
• Flora
• Global Change
• Phenology
• Reproductive Biology
• Systematic, Phylogeny and Evolution
• Teaching, Software Applications and Dissemination
• Vegetation and Habitats
The Congress is sponsored and supported by various public and private institutions. It will take place in the facilities of the Technological Campus of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM). The Organizing Committee will do everything possible to ensure the congress attendees enjoy a pleasant and safe stay, thanks to the logistical support of PIC CONGRESS & Co.

Toledo has been declared a World Heritage Site and is known as the "City of the Three Cultures". Monumental Toledo offers history, art, heritage, culture, gastronomy and crafts, and its artistic and cultural legacy have transformed the old town into a city museum. Bathed by the Tajo River, the city merges with the contrasting natural landscapes around it, and the province is home to an unbeatable combination of natural and cultural heritage.

The Congress venue is itself a historical place: The Old Royal Weapons Factory in Toledo, built as a sword factory on the banks of the Tajo River in the late 18th century at the initiative of the king Charles III of Spain. Today it represents one of the best-preserved complexes of Spanish industrial architecture, with original buildings built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the noteworthy building designed in the last third of the 18th century by Francesco Sabatini, the architect responsible for the Royal Botanical Garden in Madrid.

We look forward to seeing you in Toledo.

Rosa Pérez Badia
President of the Organizing Committee
