The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of plant and crop science societies from across the globe. GPC seeks to bring plant scientists together to work synergistically toward solving the pressing problems we face.

The central focus of the GPC is to define and engage in coordinated strategies and projects that will have impact on the most critical global issues: world hunger, energy, climate change, health and well-being, sustainability and environmental protection.


The Facebook of plant science

By building PhotosynQ – a handheld device with sensors and an online data-sharing and analysis platform – a team of Michigan State University researchers is creating the plant-science equivalent of Facebook.

When it comes to variations in crop yield, climate has a big say

Discovery of the huge but varied role of climate change in food production provides valuable insights for preparing for future conditions.


Plant Receptor Kinases: From Molecules to Environment

New Mexico, USA

Cell surface receptor kinases are one of the major components used by plants to rapidly translate extracellular signals into appropriate intracellular responses to changing environmental and developmental conditions. This meeting highlights recent developments in our understanding of receptor kinases, from their evolution, to the pathways they are involved in, to the molecular details underlying their function (e.g., post-translational modifications, structure, cell biology).

EPPN Spring School on Plant Phenotyping

Aberystwyth, UK

The Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences is hosting this EPPN training school, on March 9-13th 2015, bringing together researchers and students for a series of talks, discussions and practical exercises on different aspects of plant phenotyping.
