The Week in Botany
Here’s another collection of links. The way I select them is I look at which stories are most people with the people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. It’s been a good week for New Phytologist this week, and I could easily have included more stories from them. To give a bit more variety, I’ve trimmed a few of them out, but there’s still a fair amount from them in this week.
As far as languages go, the languages we use for blog posts depends on what languages we receive a post in. This week we have our first German-language post. In the longer term, we are considering using DeepL for machine translation if there’s an interest in it. Your opinion is welcome, but whatever we decide is not likely to happen before the end of the year. In possibly related news, my Spanish is coming along slowly.
I’ll be back next week either an hour later or earlier next week as the clocks will change for me. Until then, take care.
