The Week in Botany
It might look like a quiet week this week, but it’s report season. I’m putting in a couple of large ideas, and that all needed writing up. Now they’re in, I’m hoping to make more time for writing about Botany again.
As well as writing, I’ll also have time for reading. On my list is a surprise special issue from Annals of Botany on Seed biology in the Anthropocene. It’s not out yet, but you can get a sneak preview with Rowan Sage’s introduction that’s just gone into advance access. You should have free access to that. If you don’t have free access to the other papers in the special issue yet, you should have it once the issue is formally live.
I have a doctor’s appointment today but, assuming they don’t keep me, I should be around to send another newsletter next week. Until then, take care.

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.
