What is the ISRR?
The Society’s aim is to promote cooperation and communication between root researchers around the world. Hopefully you will join us in this endeavour.
The main activity of the International Society of Root Research is to hold regular scientific meetings at which the latest root research can be presented. Our meetings in Scotland, Australia, and Israel each attracted over 300 participants on site. The ISRR10 was also featured on twitter and youtube. The latest meeting, ISRR11, organized by University of Missouri (USA), was held as an online conference in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2015 the Lifetime Award prize was initiated; presented to Margaret McCully (2015), Hans Lambers (2018), and Wendy Silk (2021) for their significant contributions to root research.
