The Scandinavian Plant Physiology Society was founded in 1947 with the aim to connect plant scientists and build a plant research community in the Nordic countries of Europe. SPPS supports a broad range of activities within plant science, stretching from conference organisation and travel grants to outreach, prestigious prizes, and small research grants, for around 1 million Swedish kronor per year. SPPS receives their funds from the society owned journal Physiologia Plantarum. In this way profit from published plant research is redistributed to the researchers.
Physiologia Plantarum was founded in 1948 and has since grown into an international journal. PPL is committed to publishing the best full-length original research papers that advance our understanding of primary mechanisms of plant development, growth, and productivity as well as plant interactions with the biotic and abiotic environment.
