List of journals that publish plant science pedagogy articles?

Does anyone have a list of journals that accept and publish
plant science pedagogy articles for the undergraduate level of
instruction? I know a few but am certainly not aware of all of the
potential venues. I would be willing to collate and post such a list
from any responses I receive.
I am also interested in tracking down or assembling a
bibliography of plant science articles for the UG level of teaching.
Again I would be willing to maintain such a bibliography. Primarily I
am interested in laboratory exercises, but lecture concepts are also of
interest. Since Carol Reiss' manual seems to be a baseline for everyone
in the field I don't see the potential for a whole new book coming out
anytime soon, but I would like to gather together innovations and ideas
that have made it into print since then. Additionally, since many good
ideas are often presented at the ASPB meeting, I would also be
interested in collecting abstracts of the education posters in a
bibliography so that the author can be contacted if the lab/concept has
As you may guess I am wanting to 1) assemble a better lab
curriculum for my plant physiology course based on the trial and error
of others who have put time into a similar endeavor and 2) decide if any
of the innovations/ideas for labs that I generate are novel and have
interest to a community so that I may gain some scholarship credit for
the time I put into the course. An approach I am particularly in is
whether anyone has had success with integrating 'service learning' into
a lab based science course?
If this has already been done or exists elsewhere on the web, I
would be most grateful to be pointed in that direction.
