ASPB is a professional society devoted to the advancement of the plant sciences. It publishes two world-class journals and organizes conferences, and other activities that are key to the advancement of the science.
The American Society of Plant Biologists was founded in 1924 to promote
the growth and development of plant biology, to encourage and publish
research in plant biology, and to promote the interests and growth of
plant scientists in general. Over the decades the Society has evolved
and expanded to provide a forum for molecular and cellular biology as
well as to serve the basic interests of plant science.
