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.

Protecting tropical forest carbon stocks may not prevent large-scale species loss

Tropical forests are rich in carbon and biodiversity. As the world seeks to curb human-induced climate change, will protecting the carbon of tropical forests also ensure the survival of their species?


Particulate matter increases drought vulnerability of trees

Particulate matter deposits on leaves increase plant transpiration and the risk of plants suffering from drought. Particulate matter could thus be contributing more strongly to tree mortality and forest decline than previously assumed. This is suggested by results from a greenhouse study led by the University of Bonn, in which tree seedlings grown in almost particulate matter free air or in unfiltered air were compared. The results are now being published in Environmental Research Letters.

XII International Conference on Grapevine Breeding and Genetics

Bourdeaux, France

The XII International Conference on Grape Breeding and Genetics will highlight the most recent scientific progress aimed at the genetic improvement of grapevine focusing on: ampelography, grapevine genetics, genomics, cis-genomics and epigenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, fluxomics, plant physiology, phenotyping, and bioinformatics. The dramatic recent progress in most of these areas emphasizes the interest of the conference.
