The Australasian Plant Pathology Society is committed to the advancement and spread of knowledge of plant pathology and its tradition in Australasia. Australasia is understood in the broadest sense to include not only Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea, but also the Indian, Pacific and Asian regions.
The Society was established in 1969. Our members serve a broad range of scientific interests, including research scientists, teachers, students, extension professionals, administrators, industry and pest management personnel.
Each member of APPS is a companion member of the International Society for Plant Pathology and will be embodied in the ISPP mailing list. Through the International Society, APPS is a affiliate of the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS), the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS), in connection with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the International Council for Science.
