All Southern Appalachian Botanical Society members enjoy online access to all of our publications and their archives.

Support Our Mission

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.

Your membership strengthens our community and your subscription supports the continued publication of botanical scholarship.

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 85 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
