Has Nigel Chaffey found a modern-day marvel or monster? Find out in "The 21st century Prometheus"
The full title of Mary Shelley’s acclaimed 1818 novel “Frankenstein” is “Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus”. Well, fictional frightening-fellow fabricator Dr Frankenstein may have been the modern Prometheus of his day, but I’ve just chanced upon the 21st century version. Nothing to do with hard-copy science fiction of the late Georgian period, this truly modern Prometheus is science fact-based and exists virtually as an on-line Wiki

Penn State College of Agricultural Sciences module features lectures on potato and crops, and a visit to Ireland.
Penn State Plant Science majors Casey Baxter and Mikaela Hermstedt may know all there is to know about the Irish potato famine. This past spring, they took HORT 499H Walking in the Footsteps of the Irish During the Irish Potato Famine: Examinations of New World Crops in Old World Societies. The honors class included a 10-day trip to Ireland after a semester of lectures on the potato and other essential crops of both the United States and Ireland.

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.
