Plants, people, planet
Last updated: 21 Jul, 2017
How can plant science solve the global challenges of the 21st century?
Plants, People, Planet, a new journal launched at the International Botanical Congress (IBC), Shenzhen, China will seek to answer this question.
The New Phytologist Trust, in partnership with John Wiley & Sons, announces the launch of a new cross disciplinary Open Access journal: Plants, People, Planet, led by Professor Simon Hiscock (University of Oxford, UK and Director of the Oxford Botanic Garden and Harcourt Arboretum). This exciting new journal will focus on the interface between plant science and society, offering a lively and accessible forum for plant science research and discussion in its broadest sense. Simon will be supported by Dr Paul Wilkin, Head of Science (Natural Capital), at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew as Deputy Editor-in-Chief.
Plants, People, Planet will be launched at a special reception at the International Botanical Congress (IBC), Shenzhen, China, on Thursday 27th July 2017. If you wish to attend, please register interest by contacting Sarah Lennon (s.lennon[at]lancaster.ac.uk).
