The Week in Botany
I’ve taken a lot of time off this week, initially through dizziness, and later due to a trapped nerve in my shoulder causing agony in a finger. I’m thinking of it as efficiently consolidating all my problems into one period of time off. As a result, this week’s newsletter has little editing.
I’d like to highlight a call for papers from in silico Plants: Integrative and Multiscale Modelling Special Issue. This will tie in with the Crops in silico Symposium and Hackathon in May.
Assuming the doctors don’t find a new problem this week, there should be another email with you at the same time next week. Until then, take care.

The leaves of the Solanum incompletum in Hawaii, are armed with bright red thorns

Curiously, these thorns adorn the young plant and thin out as the plants get taller and established 1/🧵

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.
