XIV International Botanical Congress Berlin 1987

This maxi card and the lovely stamp on it was to commemorate the XIV International Botanical Congress in Berlin in 1987. The Berlin Congress's motto was “The Forests of the Earth".
International Botanical Congress (IBC) is an international meeting of botanists  in all scientific fields, authorized by the International Association of Botanical and Mycological Societies (IABMS) and held every six years, with the location rotating between different continents. The current numbering system for the congresses starts from the year 1900; the XVIII IBC was held in Melbourne, Australia, 24–30 July 2011, and the XIX IBC will be held in Shenzen, China, 23–29 July 2017.
This nice card was given to me by Maria.
