The Week in Botany
It’s been a mixed week this week. The climate stories are depressing. The positive for me is that I can always work on something else for a break. I wonder how it is for people who research the ongoing damage from rising temperatures. On the plus side, working with Lorena, I might be able to solve a problem that’s been hanging around a couple of years. With luck, there’ll be some news in September.
What I can say there will be is another newsletter next week, with another selection of the stories you’re sharing on Twitter. Until then, stay safe.
