Global Plant Council

The Global Plant Council (GPC) is a coalition of organizations representing the plant, crop, agricultural, and environmental sciences across the globe, representing thousands of experts.

 
 

Global Plant Council

Aims to promote plant science across borders & disciplines, supporting those involved in research, education and training, to increase awareness of plant research in science and society.

 

ECRi

ECRi is a collection of activities addressed to help the Early Career Researchers with 4 essential pillars: job hunting, grant funding, dissemination of research results and networking.

Blog

The GPC’s blog serves to provide to the plant science community a platform for raising awareness about current issues, highlighting new research, reviewing recent events and promoting Member Organizations and their work.

News

We publish relevant news articles on plant science from across the globe to keep the community up to date with recent progress.

Resources

Check the GPC list of plant science resources: grants, prizes, funding agencies, educational, organizations and networks.

Initiatives

Check the initiatives set in motion by GPC and its members related to stress resilience, nutritional security, diversity seek, knowledge exchange and new breeding technologies.

Challenges

The GPC seeks to facilitate the development of plant science for global challenges such as world hunger, sustainability, environmental protection, and climate change.

Small to moderate amounts of caffeine can lift your moods and drop the stress levels. Caffeine (trimethylxanthine) is nothing, but a modified form of a related molecule called xanthine, which can also be converted into other smaller molecules that help…
Most of Greenland is covered with ice today. But a new study shows that within the last million years it melted off and became covered with green tundra, perhaps like this view of eastern Greenland, near the ocean. The research provides strong evidence that Greenland is more sensitive to climate change than previously understood—and at risk of irreversibly melting
