The Peruvian Botany Society is a non-profit civil association that brings together scientists interested in the development of botanical research in Peru. It was born in 1948 because of the concern of the botanists of Peru to gather in an academic entity that made it possible to organize the scientific meetings and publish a newsletter with the articles of the specialty. After many years of intense activity, the Society Disappeared, to date 2004 a new generation of botanists re-energize the activities of the same, making possible in 2007 the legal registration of the Society in the Public Registry of Peru.
The objectives of the Society are:
To foster and stimulate the development and knowledge of Botany, both in its base and in its application, through meetings, conferences, congresses, symposia, seminars, publications, refresher courses and / or training.
To disseminate the knowledge and advances of science through the written and electronic media.
Establish a documentation center on basic and applied botany.
To pronounce on the subjects related to the flora, its habitat, sustainable management, uses and conservation, before the public and private organisms.
Provide advice to public and private bodies on research, teaching, use and conservation of plant resources and ecosystems.
Sponsor meetings, exhibitions and training courses in order to disseminate the knowledge of botany to the national and international community.
