The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of national, regional and international societies 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.


Stress Resilience: Call for papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Experimental Botany

Following the recent Stress Resilience Symposium and Discussion Forum that we co-hosted in Brazil last month with the Society for Experimental Biology, we are pleased to announce a call for papers for a forthcoming Special Issue of the SEB's Journal of Experimental Botany.

Addition of sugars plays a key developmental role in distantly related plants

Adding a spoonful of sugar to coffee makes it sweeter, but in plants, researchers have discovered, the addition of sugar molecules to particular proteins plays a surprising variety of roles in basic developmental processes.


36th New Phytologist Symposium: Cell biology at the plant–microbe interface

Eden Hotel Wolff, Munich, Germany

‘Cell biology at the plant–microbe interface’ will be held at the Eden Hotel Wolff, Munich, Germany, 29 November – 1 December 2015. The symposium will focus on advances in understanding the molecular interactions that occur between a microbe and its host at a cellular and subcellular level, such as:

1st Latin-American Conference on Plant Phenotyping and Phenomics for Plant Breeding

Universidad de Talca, Talca, Chile

This Conference is aimed at researchers and professionals working in the area of crop and fruit ecophysiology and breeding. The conference's emphasis is on phenotyping and phenomics. Conference sessions will address both topics at the plant and cellular levels, trying to cover all variables of interest for crop and fruit ecophysiology and breeding. All presentations (in English) will be given during the first two days of the conference.
