The Plants AG is open to all interested scientists and students. This group is led by a chair and a co-chair from different SETAC Geographic Units. Currently the chair (Gertie Arts) and co-chair (Mark Hanson) are from Europe and North America, respectively. They are supported by a member-elected Steering Committee (SC) comprised of chairs of working groups and other SC members with specific tasks. Members of the Steering Committee (limited to a maximum of 12) are evenly distributed over the three stakeholder groups (academia, government, and industry). This leadership team initiates and facilitates activities in support of the Plants AG mission. See the Plants AG SOP for more details regarding appointments and duties.
