The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies and affiliates representing plant, crop and agricultural and environmental sciences across the globe.

The GPC seeks to bring together all those involved in plant and crop research, education and training, to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.

The GPC supports the principles of open science and the free dissemination of information around the world, particularly to those in countries without access to research media.


Flowering fields provide shelter for predators

Oilseed rape fields are home to a variety of insects that bother farmers. The pollen beetle is one of them. The beetle's larvae feed on the flower buds of oilseed rape causing damage and crop failure. The larvae of different species of weevils also have a preference for rape: They tunnel into the plants' stems making them wither and die.

Monitoring of tropical trees in face of climate change

Experts have challenged the principle that tropical ecosystems are aseasonal -- after discovering regular cycles in fruiting, flowering and leafing in such climates.

25th International Congress on Sexual Plant Reproduction

Gifu, Japan

We have developed a program that includes a wide variety of important topics in plant reproduction, from flowering to seed and fruit production as you will see on the web site (http://forum.nacos.com/icspr2018/program.html). Each of the planned plenary sessions will include talks from leaders in that particular field. We will also encourage related contributions from others in the field in the poster sessions. The poster abstracts will be used to select other some additional speakers for oral presentations during the plenary sessions and to identify potential recipients of congress awards, particularly young scientists (H.F. Linskens Presentation Awards, M.T.M. Willemse Poster Awards). All of the sessions will take place in the same hall and thus all discussions will involve all participants. The goal of this meeting is to highlight current progress in plant reproduction. We also wish to recruit as many new scientists as possible to IASPRR. We look forward to seeing you at the 25th ICSPR!
