The Week in Botany
Welcome to another collection of the stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. I felt dizzy compiling the newsletter this week, either due to all the eyecatching botany, or because I haven’t set up a fan to cool the office.
If it is the botany making me dizzy, then next week will be bad. I’ll be at Botany 2021. Lorena Villanueva Almanza will be Plant Biology 2021 and Juniper Kiss will be at ATBC 2021. Though given the time difference, I’ll probably follow many of the talks on catch-up. If you ‘see’ any of us, feel free to say hello.
I’ll be back next week, possibly a little later than usual. I’ll have to make time to sing ♪Happy Birthday🎵 to Oxford Botanic Garden, which will be celebrating 400 years on Sunday.
