The Week in Botany
I’ve finally managed to change up the monitoring system this week, and I think a few more papers are surfacing that would have been missed otherwise, so I’m happy.
I’m writing this on the 31st. Today is the day that wicked and deceitful forces are said to fly through the air. I’m sure that «insert name of leader» will have a very warm welcome at Glasgow Airport for COP26.
I’ll be back next week with another collection of news and research. I’m hoping that the joke above will have aged very badly and some of the stories will be about the progress made on solving some of the world’s ecological problems. Whatever there is, it’ll be with you at the same time next week.
Take care,
