About the Society

International Society of Environmental Botanists (ISEB), is a not-for-profit, non-governmental registered

Scientific Society established at a meeting of some plant and environmental scientists held at CSIR- National Botanical

Research Institute Lucknow (CSIR-NBRI) on 3 December 1994. ISEB aims to promote the cause of environmental

protection, biodiversity conservation, bioremediation of environmental pollutants and sustainable utilization of natural

resources. The Society specially focuses on highlighting the role of plants in attaining aforementioned objectives.

Starting with 28 founder members, ISEB now enjoys a membership of over 450 individuals from all corners of

India. Its membership also extends beyond the shores of India in several foreign countries. ISEB publishes a quarterly

semi-popular-scientific magazine, ENVIRONEWS of which 84 issues have been released so far. The basic objective of

this newsletter is to disseminate scientific information on various environmental issues among non-specialist

individuals interested in environment and plant science.

From time to time, ISEB organizes educational, awareness and similar outreach programmes like popular and

scientific lectures, competitions for students and common people.

ISEB and CSIR-NBRI have jointly organized five highly successful international conferences on Plants and

Environmental Pollution in Lucknow in 1996, 2002, 2005, 2010 and 2015 in which leading scientists from more than

30 countries across the globe participated.

These Conferences provided vibrant interactive fora for serious deliberations on the pressing problems of

pollution and the role of plants in its amelioration. The deliberations during these Conferences focused on climate

change, environment and biodiversity, environmental biotechnology, plant response to environmental pollution,

environmental impact assessment, bio-indication and bioremediation, plant-microbe interaction and waste
