Congress materials have just been made available online and JGI's presentations are outlined below. Described as the "landmark forum on protected areas," experts gathered to share information at the Congress, and work together towards the creation of an agenda for protected areas conservation.

Leiden, 30 September 2014
Scientists from The Naturalis Biodiversity Centre and botanical garden Hortus botanicus Leiden have described a new orchid species collected during a field trip in 2003 to Papua New Guinea by Dr. E.F. de Vogel and Art Vogel. It has been named Dendrobium goodallianum in honour of Dame Jane Goodall. The orchid flowers only one day and smells like coconut. When the orchid flowers, it will be shown to the public in the tropical greenhouse.
