Abstract: UK PlantSci is the online home of the UK Plant Sciences Federation (UKPSF). The UKPSF is a special interest group of the Society of Biology, which aims to bring together the breadth of the UK Plant Science sector to: Increase the understanding of the significance of plant sciences, Formulate a coordinated strategy and vision that will be used to inform policy, Improve the general funding environment, Create an independent and inclusive forum for debate, Provide a focus and contact point for UK plant science and Support efforts to inspire, educate and train the next generation. The UKPSF is made up of a wide range of Member Organisations. If your organisation would like to become a member please contact Mimi Tanimoto the UKPSF Executive Officer. The UKPSF operates with financial support from the Society of Experimental Biology (SEB) and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation. UK PlantSci is a central resource for all those involved in Plant Science. We hope it will increase interactions and improve communication across the Plant Science Sector. This is a space for you to collaborate with your colleagues, share best practise and celebrate pioneering innovative breakthroughs. All too often relevant information in your field can be hard to find; well, not anymore. Our vision is that UK Plant Science will help you with your day-to-day efforts and showcase the outstanding work that you do. Everything you need to know about Plant Science can be found here. Whether it’s staying up to date with breaking news or keeping tabs on the latest funding opportunities, make sure you register to take full advantage of all the valuable information that’s available to you absolutely free! If you’ve ever wondered what others in the Plant Science UK are working on or perhaps you’re just keen to find a collaborator near you, then check out ‘Find a Scientist’, a growing directory of UK Plant Science expertise. If you’d like to see yourself listed and showcase your communities research in the directory, then simply register today. There’s always so much going on in the science world. We are here to help make sure you don’t miss out on that essential meeting, workshop, seminar or conference in your field. So if you’re looking for what’s going on in your area both home and abroad, you’ll find all the upcoming events here. This site is not just for Plant Scientists.
