Are you connected to any companies looking to reach the plant science community?  Tell them about ASPB's sponsorship opportunities!  We are looking specifically for companies who want to collaborate on educational programs and new project ideas that can be hosted in Plantae. But we are also happy to engage with companies interested in other sponsorship, exhibiting, and/or advertising opportunities.  


Did you know that the American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) powers Plantae? And that is is part of ASPB’s vision that Plantae be available to the entire plant science community? However, that doesn’t mean the platform and the staff expertise required to support it are free. One of the ways ASPB supports its activities, including Plantae, is through ASPB membership dues. You can help support the Plantae community by joining ASPB today.
