New Journal of Botany: Orchids and Hawkweeds

I hope that BSBI members have all received their print copy of the December issue of New Journal of Botany. It was published on-line last month as usual, but the holidays delayed the big mail-out of print copies - we are sorry that it may not have reached you in time for New Year's Day. 

If you are not a BSBI member, this review of the lead paper in the current issue of New Journal of Botany may give you a taste of what you are missing. It is written by Ryan Clark who (as you may have already heard once or twice!) co-ordinated the New Year Plant Hunt

We also published a paper by Plant-Hunt co-founder Dr Tim Rich about his new Hawkweed - this one is named for Sir David Attenborough.  

And here's a last glimpse of the New Journal of Botany cover for 2014. Claudia Ferguson-Smyth is curating the new cover for 2015 as we speak - I can't wait to see what she comes up with! I'll be taking the results to Publications Committee next month, so will try and give you a sneak preview then - if Claudia will let me ;-)
