The Week in Botany
It’ll be a busy week next week. On my to-do list for a while has been to move the website to a better server. I’ve known that the day was coming that we’d need better hosting. It seems that day came March 30, so next week the site might break down for a while as various addresses resolve to direct you to the faster server.
It’s sooner than I would have liked as things remain hectic here. But in happy news, the Annals of Botany Company is looking to appoint two editors to Botany One. I’ll point you to the Plantae version of the job advert as the Botany One site is unreliable at exactly the wrong time.
I’ll write help on how to apply and try to get it out early this week. However, the single best bit of advice I have is read the advert. We’re trying to be very explicit about what we are looking for and have nine application questions for you to answer.
One in thirteen people were infected by COVID-19 in the UK last week. I still haven’t caught it once yet. Given current policy is to pretend it’s not happening, I feel that will change soon. But so long as it’s not this week, then there’ll be another newsletter with you at the same time next week.

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.
