What is the International Society of Root Research?

Peter Gregory, President ISRR

As President of the International Society of Root Research, I welcome you to this website. The Society’s aim is to promote cooperation and communication between root researchers around the world. I hope that you will join us in this endeavour.

The main activity of the Society is to hold regular scientific meetings at which the latest research on roots can be presented.Our last two meetings in Dundee, Scotland and Canberra, Australia each attracted over 300 participants. Our next meeting will be held in Israel from 8 to 12 July, 2018.

In 2015 we initiated a Lifetime Award prize that was presented to Professor Margaret McCully for her significant contribution to root research.
