The best poster award will consist of a selection of Springer-Nature books. The winner will receive a congratulatory e-mail from Springer-Nature with the offer to select an eBook or hard copy of their choice up to a value of EUR/USD 250 (no expiry date).

The pest presentation award will be given to the most voted and the second most voted presentations. The first prize will consist of the possibility to publish a free paper on the journal Plants (IF3.935), whereas the second prize consists of a money prize of 380 € (subjected to local taxation).

All presentations and posters will be potential winners and all attendees will be eligible to participate in the selection through two online forms that will be made accessible during the conference.

Special issue of Plant Ecology

Many plant species around the globe are threatened or already extirpated from the wild as a result of habitat loss, pollution, alien invasive species and climate change. Translocation is now becoming a common conservation action, sometimes highly successful, sometimes dramatically discouraging. The 1st International Plant Translocation Conference (IPTC2022) in Rome from 20-23 June 2022 will provide a forum to share experiences aimed at improving translocation science and practice.

A Special Issue of Plant Ecology entitled “Advances in plant translocation” will provide an opportunity for IPTC2022 attendees willing to publish their results to transform their accepted abstracts into full manuscripts, thus contributing to the advancement of the field of translocation.

The Special Issue also welcomes external contributions from authors not attending the IPTC2022, but willing to publish relevant research within the general topic of plant translocation.

The Special Issue seeks empirical, experimental, methodological and review papers reporting on of all types of translocation (i.e. population reinforcement, introduction, reintroduction, assisted colonizations, de-extinction, etc.). Perspective and theoretical articles will be included. Articles dealing with the main conference topics will be given priority:


  1. Adaptive monitoring and management for maintaining reintroduced populations
  2. Using new technologies for designing and monitoring translocation
  3. Multi-species approach and biotic interactions in translocation
  4. Ex situ conservation approaches for increasing success in translocation
  5. Translocation in urban and agriculture landscapes
  6. Ecological restoration for threatened species conservation
  7. Assisted colonisation of threatened plants
  8. Policy analysis and advancement in plant translocation


The Special Issue will not accept translocation reports or technical descriptions of translocation cases.

All manuscripts submitted for the Special Issue will go through the standard peer review processes of the journal. Manuscripts will be handled by a special Guest Editor team with specific expertise in translocation science.
