Latest issue of Journals Adaptive environmental responses of plants in synecoculture fields Journal of latest issue
Synecoculture is based on high-density mixed polyculture, which harbors a wide variety of edible plants and rich interactions between environment, flora and fauna: Leaf color change of no-fertilizer cabbage during winter. Tomato in Tokyo can extend its growth until december crawling over chestnut. Cruciferous vegetables (Brassicaceae) easily intercross and produce hybrid varieties with higher yield. Honey bees and butterflies are not only pollinators but also important enhancers of micronutrients profile of crops.

ABOUT SOCIETY
Japanese Society for Plant Cell and Molecular Biology was established in 1981 as Japanese Society for Plant Tissue Culture, and was changed to the present name in 1995 to reflect its extended activities. Our society supports development of both basic and applied researches in the fields of plant tissue culture, molecular biology and cell technology. To this end, we hope to facilitate exchanges of research information and cooperation among researchers of various disciplines, including basic science, agriculture, pharmacy, and engineering.
ACTIVITIES
Every year we are holding an annual meeting for members and a public forum to help citizens understand plant science and plant biotechnology. We also publish a journal, Plant Biotechnology , four times a year. In addition, we are providing useful up-to-date information on genetically modified plants in our website (domestic only).
