    Plant science questions answered by Society of Biology

    So many issues in plant science (and science in general) don’t have the simple answers we expect. It can be hard to keep up with these debates, and reliable information is often difficult to find. Forming an evidence-based opinion can be very challenging when evidence points in different directions, particularly as many people providing the information have their own campaign agenda.
    So the Society of Biology has been approached by Sense About Science with an idea to tackle this: an expert panel ready to give accurate answers to any questions related to plant science.
    Sense About Science’s online portal was launched last month as a one-stop-shop for plant science questions.
    Leading research institutions and learned societies across the UK came together to form the public panel, whose expertise includes agriculture, bioenergy, biochemistry, plant pathology and genetics.
    Plant science research is central to decisions about future energy, land use, wildlife, environmental protection, pest problems, nutrition and food safety. It is essential that everyone involved has access to scientific evidence and these debates will benefit from the opinions of people from diverse backgrounds.
    Questions can be sent via Twitter, @senseaboutsci or #plantsci, or by emailing
