The International Botanical Congress in Shenzhen (PRC) on KEP stamps
06 July 2017

Plants play a special role in the life of our planet. The very existence of the animal kingdom, including humans, would be impossible without the plant kingdom. This determines the importance of botany, which has as its object the scientific study of plants.

The International Botanical Congresses (IBCs) are world forums of scientists engaged in various areas of botanical research. One of the functions of the IBCs is also the introduction of changes and additions to the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants. IBCs are held every six years. The 19th International Botanical Congress is held in Shenzhen (PRC) from 23 to 29 July 2017.

The new issue of KEP stamps is dedicated to this event. This series includes two miniatures, which feature flowers especially popular in the East: peony and chrysanthemum.

The 19th IBC is held under the auspices of the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS). The Congress is organized by the Botanical Society of China and the municipality of Shenzhen. China was not accidentally chosen as the host country of the IBC. As a booming economic power, the PRC has accumulated valuable experience in the construction of an innovation-oriented society that protects the biodiversity of natural resources.
