SPPS - the Scandinavian Plant Physiology Society (Societas Physiologia Plantarum Scandinavica) was founded 1947 and works to promote all aspects of experimental plant biology, from molecular cell biology and biochemistry to ecophysiology
Based in the Scandinavian countries, SPPS is truly an international Society - SPPS is open to anybody with interest in plant biology and who wishes to support the society - SPPS have members all over the world. Presently the society counts almost 500 members of which about the half come from USA, Japan, Germany, and many other non-Scandinavian countries.
SPPS is a forum for contact and communication among plant biologists. Presently some of the most important efforts of SPPS are to arrange and support scientific meetings, to publish the journal Physiologia Plantarum, and to promote the interests and growth of plant science in general.
The society is headed by an elected board with representatives in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway. Presently the SPPS office is placed in Copenhagen. SPPS is affiliated to the European Society, FESPB.
FESPB - the Federation of European Societies of Plant Biology is Europe's largest and most widely representative society of plant scientists. It comprises over 3200 members drawn from 30 constituent national or regional societies of plant physiology, botany or biology. Almost all the countries of western, central and eastern Europe are represented.
The aims of FESPB are to advance research, education, and the exchange of information amongst plant biologists within Europe and beyond, and to support the publication of the results of research through its four affiliated international journals, including Physiologia Plantarum.
