Division of Botany

Division Information

About DOB: 

The Division of Botany is the newest SICB division, and was formed to encourage the inclusion of plants in the study of comparative patterns and integration in biology. Our members include longtime members of SICB who are interested in plants as well as plant biologists who have recently joined the society. The Division sponsors Best Student Presentation awards, and encourages the integration of plant biology into areas studied in other divisions.  We have a young, diverse membership and all are welcome to join our division.
