100 Plant Science Questions

The University of Bristol and the New Phytologist Foundation need your help! They are collecting the 100 most important questions in plant science, and want to hear from CONNECTED members.

Plant science research is vital to meet ongoing global challenges: what research is needed as we tackle the climate and biodiversity crises, and work towards carbon net zero? Which questions do you think need to be answered?

No question is too big or small. Please submit your questions until the 31st of December 2021 with this link. The submission form is also available in French, Spanish, German, Portuguese (Brazil), Arabic, Chinese (Simplified) and Japanese.

100 questions will be selected by a panel and the final list will be published in New Phytologist.

They are aiming to reach as many people as possible, so please share widely with your networks, and email if you have any questions. Join the conversation on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook by using #100PlantQuestions.
