The Botanical Society of Scotland has two types of membership, Standard and Basic.
All members receive by post the BSS News (twice yearly), lecture and field programmes, details of all the Society's events and access to the members' area of our website.
Standard rate members also receive by post the Society's scientific journal Plant Ecology & Diversity. Standard members can also go online and download all the Society's journals, from papers which have just been accepted for publication in Plant Ecology & Diversity, all the way back to the first issue of Transactions of the Botanical Society of Edinburgh published in 1844.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students can claim reduced rates for both Standard and Basic membership. Those applying for, or renewing, student membership are asked to indicate their place and year of study and may be asked for proof of their academic status.
All members of the Botanical Society of Scotland may visit and use the reference facilities at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. The library and herbarium are immensely valuable resources. Please contact them in advance of your visit.
Subscriptions become due on 1st October each year.
Memberships can be purchased or renewed safely online through PayPal.
