The Botanical Society of America
The BSA is the professional home for botanists and plant scientists. We support the breadth and diversity of botanical research and education. Our main area of expertise is in supporting professional botanists and their students, and we also encourage K-12 teachers, community college educators, affiliated professionals and amateurs as members who can benefit from what we have to offer. We are a leading Society dedicated to BOTANY and its FUTURE.
Our Mission: To promote botany, the field of basic science dealing with the study and inquiry into the form, function, development, diversity, reproduction, evolution, and uses of plants and their interactions within the biosphere.
Diversity and inclusion are core values of the Botanical Society of America. Click here to read BSA's 2020 Response to Racism Against our Black Colleagues and Community.
