Join SABS and Subscribe to Castanea

All Southern Appalachian Botanical Society Members enjoy online access to all of our publications and can add a print subscription to any membership.

Join Our Mission

The guiding purpose of activities like publishing Castanea Journal, Chinquapin Newsletter, and providing financial support to botany students, is to promote botanical interest and add to the body of knowledge concerning the flora and ecology of the southern Appalachian region and the Eastern United States.

Let’s make a difference together! 

Join the SABS Community

The Eastern United States is one of the most botanically diverse places on our Blue Dot. 

This region’s diversity and beauty has inspired and enthralled professional botanists and plant enthusiasts for generations. 

In 1936 our community was founded to connect botanists with one another and the interest we share.

Today, we offer the opportunity to be a part of a tight-knit community of people who appreciate the wondrous importance of floral life in the Eastern United States

Grow with us

The Southern Appalachian Botanical Society is a growing organization with an 84 year legacy. 

Interest in our field is growing and we’re dedicated to helping young botanists grow professionally and academically.

In 2019 we began self-publishing Castanea and the journal achieved its highest impact factor ever! We also had this website custom-built to provide members and institutional subscribers with easy online access to the entirety of Castanea’s 85 volumes.

In 2020 we launched a new community site for the Society. It includes a botanical blogging space for members and detailed information about SABS officers, scholarships, awards, and ongoing activities. Visit SABS.us
