Welcome to the home page of the Botanical Society of America

The BSA is a home for ALL botanists and plant scientists. We support the breadth and diversity of botanical research and education. Our main area of expertise is in supporting professional botanists and their students, but we also encourage our K-12 teachers, community college educators, affiliated professionals and amateurs members who benefit from what the we have to offer. We are a leading Society dedicated to BOTANY and its FUTURE.
