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
