Join the social network group at

The Moss node at, the social network for the plant sciences, is now active!

This Moss social network group has just begun with the goal of bringing together all different sort of researchers who study these plants, the most interesting clade on the tree of life!

This site has many advantages over static email lists with its nested structure, focused (and archived) discussion threads, documents, picture, and movie sharing, etc. For example, this might be the perfect place where to produce an up to date list of student research projects for MSc and PhD theses. Students need to join to be able to add content as a "post" with project description, the student's name, contact details, supervisor's name and contact details, school or institution affiliation, etc. Each post intended for the list will include a shared label to automate archiving and displaying. Something like: "Theses Research Projects" will work. Everyone can see all content browsing the Moss Clade homepage.

Please join in, add material, share data and information, and help make the group grow.
