Canadian Society of Plant Biologists
The Canadian Society of Plant Biologists/La Societé canadienne de biologie végétale comprises
undergraduate and graduate students as well as professional scientists. Members have interests
in: genomics, molecular and cell biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, plant development,
biochemistry, natural products, metabolism, proteomics, metabolomics, physiology, physiological
ecology, adaptations to biotic and abiotic stress, development of research techniques and
equipment, and education. Members of the CSPB are engaged in basic and applied research,
undergraduate and graduate education, management, extension, and the design and manufacture of
scientific equipment. Society members are employed in academic institutions, government research
institutes, and private industry. There are a significant number of international members, and
also corporate members. The CSPB is the largest plant science organization in Canada, with
approximately 400 members.
The Canadian Society of Plant Biologists was founded in 1958 as the Canadian Society of Plant
Physiologists/La Societé canadienne de physiologie végétale, and grew out of informal meetings
and conferences earlier in the 1950s; in 2012 the Society adopted its present name. The Society
is a not-for-profit organization and a registered charity, and is a founding member of both
Plant Canada and the
Global Plant Council. It is also a member of the
Partnership Group for Science and Engineering.
Botany, published by NRC Press, is the official journal of both the CSPB and the Canadian
News | Nouvelles
