The Week in Botany
This week it was Black Botanists Week on Twitter. It’s both an inspirational and frustrating hashtag to follow. The reason for both feelings is that it’s crammed full of amazing researchers doing fascinating work, and there’s so much to see that I feel I must have missed a lot of it.
As always I’m selecting the stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. I try to choose from an equal number of days so no one story dominates the week, but this week it’s been impossible to ignore the forest fires, as they’re everywhere. I could probably have filled the news section entirely with forest fire stories.
I hope there’ll be more cheerful news next week. In the meantime, stay safe.
