Welcome

Welcome to the Botanical Society of America's new resource portal! This project is run in conjunction with the Ecological Society of America, the Society for Economic Botany, and the Society for the Study of Evolution and is in part supported by the National Science Foundation.

This site is a tool designed to allow members to share resources online—images, syllabi, labs, lectures, data sets, software, etc. If you have a resource that helps the Society promote its mission, we're here to assist you in sharing it.
