Look into your crystal ball…what do you see for the future of plant pathology?
In 2005, a group of APS members, charged with the mission of articulating a vision for the future of plant pathology, came together to develop "A Vision of Plant Pathology in the 21st Century," where five interacting "areas of endeavor" were identified. As the Vision Tree depicts, the group identified education as the foundation of our discipline, with research and the practice of plant pathology closely linked through a robust, coordinated network promoting communication among the increasingly diverse plant pathologists of the future.

APS would like to know your vision of the future of the discipline of plant pathology. Provide your comments to any APS Council member for consideration. Your comments will help APS revise this vision document to reflect the best thinking of our membership.
