UK Plant Science: Current status and future challenges report

The UK Plant Sciences Federation has released the results of the first ever analysis of activities across the UK's plant science sector.

The report, UK Plant Science: Current status and future challenges reveals that the UK's position as a world leader in plant science is under threat from a shortage of funding and a lack of stable investment in essential skills. It lays out urgent actions needed to ensure the UK can respond to significant global challenges such as guaranteeing food security, coping with the threats from climate change, protecting biodiversity, and improving human health.
