This is the list of the AESOP "Sustainable Food Planning" group. This list is used to share call for papers, conferences, and activities of the group

Agricultural Green House Gases Project Discussion Mailing List. A mailing list to manage and record all discussions about terms added and being considered for the AGHGP Controlled Vocabulary for variable names.

A list for the discussion of matters relating to research and teaching in the area of Agricultural Economics.

This list is the discussion forum for a growing network of critical agroecology researcher across the UK, Europe and beyond. Its focus is on the social, political and economic aspects of agroecological transformations of food systems as much as on the ecological ones. It was set up after two important sessions at the Oxford Real Farming Conference 2019 & 2020, both convened by the Food Ethics Council, on how to make publicly funded research support an agroecological transition.

A distribution list to communicate research and development news related to agroforestry in Europe, linked to the EU FP7 research project "AGFORWARD" and the work of the European Agroforestry Federation

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.

The Group aims are: 1) To provide a forum for ecologists working in agricultural systems, conservationists with an interest in agricultural systems, crop, grassland and forest scientists working on increasing economic production, weed scientists, and agricultural policy makers. 2) To integrate very different approaches (ecology, economic production, conservation) to agricultural systems to address common issues. 3) To enhance communication among scientists and others working on agricultural systems using meetings, workshops, BES Bulletin reports and an email forum.

This list is intended for academics, researchers, educationalists and others working in the field of ecological (organic/biological) agriculture, to provide a forum for discussion of ideas, identification of potential collaborators and exchange of news, conference information and publications details.

Discussion of the development of organic farming policy in Europe (western, central and eastern Europe), including relevant research projects, east-west and regional contacts, announcements of courses, conferences, and new publications relating to the subject.

The Internet of Food Things (IoFT) Network Plus is supporting the digitalised food chain. It brings together data and computer scientists, chemists, and economists. It investigates artificial intelligence, data analytics, IoT, robots and emerging technologies. It will run conferences, workshops and fund pilot studies, projects, and reviews

A network of scholars and others interested in promoting good work within global food production and other parts of the food system.

This is an interdisciplinary mailing list for the discussion of all aspects of interwar rural history, with a focus on the UK

This list is for staff responsible for peer review within member colleges.

A news & discussion group to encourage knowledge exchange between researchers & stakeholders with an interest in landscape decision-making research

This list is designed to encourage sharing of information and ideas among the college contacts from the Land-Based Colleges National Consortium

closed discussion list for members of Scottish Agricultural Librarians Group

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

This working group: “Plantations: Political ecologies of extraction and resistance” aims to: Examine historical and contemporary perspectives on the ‘plantation’ and its processes of subsuming social and ecological relations into capitalist regimes through the appropriation of cheap natures, and the multiple and differentiated effects of these processes. #Examine how plantation logics (of erasure, replacement, simplification, extraction, and exploitation) shape and reshape social and ecological relations beyond the boundaries of #plantations through global markets and technologies, and resistance to these logics. Explore processes of resistance to plantations and examine possibilities for convivial and reparative futures. Draw together researchers, organisations, and frontline communities from across the world into interdisciplinary conversations on plantations in different geographical contexts.

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).
