The Association of Applied Biologists is an international professional society for all those working, studying or interested in applied biology.


The Association was founded in 1904 and is a registered charity (No. 275655). Our mission is:   


 "To promote the study and advancement of all branches of Biology and in particular (but without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing), to foster the practice, growth and development of applied biology, with a focus on the application of biological sciences in the production of food, materials and energy, and for the maintenance and improvement of earth's environment".    


We deliver this charitable mission through the publication of scientific journals in applied biology, the organisation of conferences in a range of related subject themes, the formulation and dissemination of policies to promote the discipline, the production of a newsletter and the provision of services for members.


We have approximately 800 members across the world and many libraries subscribe to our publications.  


We welcome all those who are interested in applied biology.
