The Week in Botany
Once again, here’s a collection of the top links shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. We seem to be a bit short of news stories this week, but there’s a strong showing of papers from bioRxiv. The stories we have also few images, so I’ve included an extra one that was very popular in the stream this week.
The Annals of Botany job was announced on Monday this week. You can get the details of the job as a PDF or in HTML. The deadline is July 1. This is an Annals job, not Botany One, so you need more details than are in the advert you should contact the Managing Editor, Catherine Hyland ( or the Social Media Editor, Gabriela Auge (
There will be a newsletter next week, but I don’t know when or how yet. I’ll be away for the week in Machynlleth. It’s a part of Wales with poor phone signal, so I’ll either have to schedule things before I leave on Thursday night, or when I’m back Monday evening.
Until then, take care,

Shetland Wildlife
Lots of Round-leaved Sundew seen by our Ultimate Shetland group yesterday. It feeds on insects attracted to its bright red colour and glistening drops of mucilage secreted from glandular hairs. Enzymes then dissolve the insects and extract nutrients from their bodies. 😮 Amazing!

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.
