ArabUk is a UK Arabidopsis news and discussion forum, for disseminating and sharing information relating to the UK Arabidopsis and wider Plant Science Research Community. ArabUK provides a mechanism for UK Arabidopsis researchers to communicate with other researchers within the UK or with those individuals that have an interest in Arabidopsis research. The mail list is also used for mailings relating to GARNet (Genomic Arabidopsis Resource Network)

The aim of this list is to facilitate communication through the exchange of information on meetings, conferences, bibliographies, publications, reference collections and botanical and ethnographic data relevant to the analysis of archaeological plant macro-remains. People on this list should also be able to exchange ideas about various aspects of archaeobotany such as problems of methodology, identification, presentation and interpretation.
