Interpretive Summary: Poisonous plants are a major cause of economic loss to livestock producers in many parts of the world. Losses include deaths, abortions, birth defects, reduced production and lost forage value. The USDA-ARS-Poisonous Plant Research Lab in collaboration with the Inner Mongolia Agricultural University, in Hohhot Inner Mongolia, People’s Republic of China co-sponsored a 3 day symposium titled “The 9th International Symposium on Poisonous Plants (ISOPP9)”. Presentations focused on botany, veterinary medicine, chemistry of poisonous plants, toxicology and range management. This international symposium, followed by a 2 day range tour of the vast grasslands of the Xilinhot Region of the Mongolian Grasslands, and provided opportunities for scientists and students to discuss common issues about poisonous plants that impact livestock producers and researchers in many countries across the globe.
