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.

A small number of crops are dominating globally. And that’s bad news for sustainable agriculture

A new University of Toronto study suggests that globally we're growing more of the same kinds of crops, and this presents major challenges for agricultural sustainability on a global scale.


How plants cope with iron deficiency

Iron is an essential nutrient for plants, animals and also for humans. It is needed for a diverse range of metabolic processes, for example for photosynthesis and for respiration. If a person is lacking iron, this leads to a major negative impact on health. Millions of people around the globe suffer from iron deficiency each year. Iron enters the human food chain through plants, either directly or indirectly. Although there are large quantities of iron in the soil in principle, plants may become iron-deficient because of the specific composition of the soil. Additionally, a plant's iron requirements vary throughout its development depending on external circumstances.

INTERACTIVE DATA ANALYSIS AND VISUALIZATION WITH R SHINY

Barcelona - Spain

This course is for individuals considering developing Shiny apps to deliver their research. Thus, the goal will be to teach the skills necessary to translate static products (your current analysis in R) to dynamic products delivered via a simple web-based graphic-user interface.


Plant 2019

Valencia - Spain

Plant 2019 aims to bring together leading botanists, academic scientists, young inspired researchers, research scholars to share their experiences and research results about all aspects of development in Plant Science. Plant 2019 also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, scientists, academicians and industrialists to present, share the knowledge and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the fields of Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology.
