The Society works through its Education Committee to provide resources that promote the teaching and learning of science using plants and encourage plant biology as a career choice. ASPB offers this Statement on the Importance of Participation of Scientists in K-12 Science Education. ASPB is active in the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education movement. In response to a recent call in Science to mobilize scientific societies, ASPB offers this succinct menu of online instructional items culled from the full resources linked below.
The 12 Principles of Plant BiologyPlants are critical to education, research, and daily living. The 12 principles are integral to biology and can be explored for a better understanding of plant science.
