The Australian Society of Plant Scientists (ASPS) is an incorporated society that promotes Plant Science in Australia, and provides professional contact within our community of teachers and researchers in the plant sciences. JG Wood was the Foundation President of our Society and with RN Robertson, brought our Society to fruition. The Australian Society of Plant Scientists was founded on 19 August 1958 during an inaugural meeting at the University of Adelaide, at a time when physiological aspects of plant biology were beginning to grow rapidly within Australia. That early enthusiasm and a prevailing commitment to greater understanding of plant function remains undiminished. The full constitution of the society is available here. The Society can be broadly described as: A group of individuals who are deeply interested in how plants function. Providing a forum for sharing of knowledge so that the membership can build both the depth and breadth of knowledge of plant functions. Providing mutual support and collective mentorship. Recognising and rewarding excellence at all levels of scientific career development without fear or favour. Nurturing the next generation of plant scientists. Working on behalf of members to enhance their ability to do research and to educate others in plant sciences. Supporting a journal, Functional Plant Biology, that reflects the broad interests of the members. Organising the national conference ComBio and other symposia in association with other Australian scientific societies, to facilitate the dissemination of new research.


Biobased Press is an independent, non-sponsored website that takes a helicopter view of the biobased economy: it not just discusses business and research, but it also links to neighbouring areas like sustainability, energy, agriculture, policy and the economy.


ADC Bioscientific Ltd we build on nearly 50 years’ experience as manufacturers of research-driven, portable and intuitive instrumentation. Our renowned IR gas analysis technology is incorporated into devices used worldwide to analyse the carbon cycle throughout plant science, climate monitoring and soil respiration research for crop resilience. An impressive range of chlorophyll fluorometers, combined with advanced photosynthesis systems, enable C3 and C4 plant stress analysis to suit all budgets and applications. The latest Plant Stress Probe (PSP32) allows monitoring of up to 32 plants at once, both night and day for any length of time. Our latest in soil respiration systems; the EGA60, combines CO2 and H20 analysis in one versatile unit for multi-sample study.

AM350 Portable Leaf Area Meter The AM350 is a compact and portable leaf area meter suitable for the accurate, non-destructive measurement of leaf area and associated parameters. The AM350 consists of a high resolution scanner and scanboard with integral data analysis and image storage. A multiposition carrying handle is provided for increased portability and ease of use. Measurement of leaves can be carried out on the scanboard or an independent plain surface. The large, high contrast liquid crystal display offers visual confirmation of scanned leaf area together with the measured leaf parameters. Operation is by menu driven software and measurements may be displayed in mm, cm or inches. An adjustable contrast control makes the AM350 suitable for damaged, discoloured or diseased leaf applications. Using a high speed USB port, the stored image can be downloaded, in bmp or tif formats, into commercially available image analysis software.
