The NY Times is the latest media outlet to freak out about Italian olives. There’s quite a lot to freak out about. Xylella fastidiosa, the bacterium that is believed to have caused serious damage to perhaps a million trees in

Toothworts, a fascinating plant that may need help at In Defense of Plants http://ow.ly/N4zqi #fopd #botany
North America's native toothworts are something worth celebrating. These wonderful little mustards burst into bloom each spring all over moist deciduous forests, putting on a show that lasts only a few weeks. By mid June these little plants are just about ready for dormancy. Coming across a patch of any toothwort species is always a joy, especially after a long winter. The toothworts were once placed in the genus Dentaria but are now...

Annals of Botany: Plant Science Research
Introduction
The Annals of Botany is a journal that covers all aspects of Plant Science. We also publish AoB Plants, a free Open Access journal.

At AoB Blog we keep you up-to-date with the latest research in our journals and interesting Plant Science news from around the world.


AoB Bloggers

A few people in the AoB office have their own G+ accounts

• Pat Heslop-Harrison is Editor-in-Chief, and you'll find him posting about research and adding videos.

• AJ Cann is the Internet Consulting Editor and a microbiologist. You can read more about him at http://bit.ly/AJCann 

• Alun Salt backs up AoB Blog and stops it falling over. He works for Annals of Botany around 50% of the time, which is why a lot of his personal stream has no obvious botanical connection.
