ArabUk is a UK Arabidopsis news and discussion forum, for disseminating and sharing information relating to the UK Arabidopsis and wider Plant Science Research Community. ArabUK provides a mechanism for UK Arabidopsis researchers to communicate with other researchers within the UK or with those individuals that have an interest in Arabidopsis research. The mail list is also used for mailings relating to GARNet (Genomic Arabidopsis Resource Network) http://www.garnetcommunity.org.uk/

The aim of this list is to facilitate communication through the exchange of information on meetings, conferences, bibliographies, publications, reference collections and botanical and ethnographic data relevant to the analysis of archaeological plant macro-remains. People on this list should also be able to exchange ideas about various aspects of archaeobotany such as problems of methodology, identification, presentation and interpretation.

List for announcements and discussion by members of the British Ecological Society Citizen Science special interest group and others interested in citizen science. The focus is on citizen science relevant to the UK and ecology. Membership of the BES is encouraged but is not required.

This list is for the research and discussion of the etymology of plants and animal species scientific names (binomial nomenclature) and the history of vernacular names.

This mailing list is run on behalf of the European Commissions Biodiversity Research Program. It is intended for investigating and disussing the impacts of Global Change on the biodiversity of herbaceous seminatural ecosystems.

This list is used by members of the RGS-IBG Biogeography Research Group to circulate announcements and to facilitate discussion of issues of relevance to biogeography.

A place for botanic garden educators and related professionals to discuss the social role of botanic gardens and other outdoor learning sites.

The European Botanical and Horticultural Libraries Group (EBHL) is an association to promote and facilitate co-operation and communication between those working in botanical and horticultural libraries, archives and related institutions in Europe. Europe is interpreted in the widest sense to include countries both within and outside the European Union (EU)

The (plant) Environmental Physiology Group is part of the British Ecological Society and The Society for Experimental Biology. This list is open to anyone worldwide and aims to promote research discussion and to distribute information such as conference details and employment opportunities.

A forum for exchange of views and information on geological collections and their management. This is the discussion list for the Geological Curators Group, affiliated to the Geological Society of London. For further information, and to join the Group, see the website: https://www.geocurator.org/ This list is open for anyone with an interest in geological collections to join and contribute.

INQUIRE is a EU funded project with the aim of helping to reinvigorate inquiry-based science education throughout Europe. Coordinated by Innsbruck University and Botanic Gardens Conservation International, 14 botanic gardens in 11 countries have developed 60 hour teacher training courses to inspire students in science and help address biodiversity and climate change.

A forum for contemporary scientific debate across the life sciences. This low-volume announcement list provides news, conference and event updates of interest to those working in biology, zoology, botany, genetics, and the historical basis and development of plant and animal classification.

This list is for members of the London Biology Libraries Group to communicate about different aspects of their work in supporting their research communities in Higher Education and other life sciences educational organisations.

For discussion of issues in image analysis research funded by RESAS

The email group will permit secure communication between members of the NORNEX BBSRC consortium, to organise meetings, share information, coordinate reports, and plan research.

The list will develop dialogue between researchers from diverse settings #and backgrounds, stimulate interest in this under-researched but important area of garden and landscape history, and provide a base from which seminars, conferences and joint publications can be developed.

This list is used by members of the PAW group to support collaboration and exchange of information between linguists, anthropologists, ethnobotanists, ethnoornithologists and archivists.

PlantSciUK is a news and discussion forum for disseminating and sharing information relating to the UK Plant Sciences Federation (UKPSF). The UKPSF is a special interest group of the Royal Society of Biology which aims to bring together the breadth of the UK Plant Science sector to: • Increase the understanding of the significance of plant sciences • Formulate a coordinated strategy and vision that will be used to inform policy • Improve the general funding environment • Create an independent and inclusive forum for debate • Provide a focus and contact point for UK plant science • Support efforts to inspire, educate and train the next generation The UKPSF operates with financial support from the Society of Experimental Biology (SEB), the Biochemical Society and the British Society for Plant Pathology (BSPP). For more info on UKPSF visit http://www.plantsci.org.uk/

List for members of the European Chapter of the Society for Economic Botany to share news, events, queries and discussions on ethnobotany/economic botany.
