The Week in Botany
The email was disrupted a little last week. I was working on it when the room I was working in began to pitch and yaw like it was being tossed on the high seas. This was a surprise as I live sixty miles inland. I’ve reduced my workload for this week, and also for next as I have a trip to the surgery - on the off chance that it’s me that has the problem and not the house.
It seems like a good time to remind you that we’re looking for new editors for Botany One, and there are some tips to help you apply. If you know someone who’d be perfect for the role, tell them before the deadline of May 3.
As a result, there will probably be another newsletter with you next week, but it might be a little reduced. Until then, take care.

Privacy Policy
We store your email in order to know who to send the emails to. We have to share that list with Revue because they’re the company that actually sends the emails out. We get information about how many emails open, so it might be 50% one week, but we wouldn’t be able to tell if you were in the half that opens the email or the half that didn’t. Revue have their own longer privacy policy.
The email is funded by the Annals of Botany Company.
