BSA Statement On Ukraine

The Botanical Society of America promotes an inclusive global scientific community and the sharing of botanical knowledge and innovation. BSA stands in solidarity with Ukraine and we voice our grave concern for our botanical colleagues there. We are appalled by the military invasion and the resulting humanitarian crises, loss of life, and attempts to destroy Ukrainian culture and natural and scientific resources. We stand in solidarity with all people, including our Russian colleagues, who work in opposition to the aggression, destruction, and genocide occurring in Ukraine. We desire justice and peace, an end to this brutal assault, and a return to civil international relations.
