The Week in Botany
Here comes another collection of stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. I’m pleased we got Philip White’s bibliometrics article out this week. It’s interesting to see how bibliometrics can do more than just keep score.
The photo of the week is also the story of the week. Click on the photo to see the whole thing on Twitter.
There should be another collection of stories with you the same time next week.
