Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology

The Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology (EEPP) section is the only theme-based section within the American Society of Plant Biologists. This section represents anyone interested in the broad category that our name implies. Our goal is to integrate leaf and plant- level responses to biotic and abiotic stress under field and laboratory conditions, to set molecular physiology in an ecological context, or to provide a basis for scaling root and shoot level responses to canopy, ecosystem and region for crops or natural vegetation.

Our mission is to:

  • Advance and promote the science and practice of Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology
  • Integrate the plant environmental physiology community and research opportunities within and outside ASPB
  • Support, train and liaise with young plant environmental physiologists
  • Work with other societies to promote the missions of Environmental and Ecological Plant Physiology

Section Meetings

The group holds its Annual Business Meeting at the ASPB Annual Meeting.  The section places emphasis on education/workshops, social interactions and on academic subjects. It is an excellent forum for meeting people working in similar fields, for socializing as well as general networking. Please contact any of the officers  if you would like to propose any activities such as meetings, symposium or training event or if you are interested in becoming involved in the section.
