The guiding purpose of activities like publishing Castanea, Chinquapin, and sponsoring botany students is to promote botanical interest and add to the our field’s body of knowledge.
The flora and ecology of the Southern Appalachian region and the Eastern United States is tragically under studied and often in perril. The Southern Appalachian Botanical Society is proud to contribute to botanical science by publishing the peer-reviewed journal, Castanea, since 1936.
