Bookings have opened for the BSBI Identifying Wildflower Families session in Aberdeen, run by botanical tutor Faith Anstey. More info here and you can book here.

If you are a fan of herbaria, I think you'll enjoy this interview with Donna Young, herbarium curator at National Museums Liverpool. And if you are a herbarium curator yourself, did you know that you can now self-register for Index Herbariorum, or edit your own entry. More here.

An interesting new paper by Ruth Mitchell et al. called 'Decline in atmospheric sulphur deposition and changes in climate are the major drivers of long-term change in grassland plant communities in Scotland'. You can view the paper here.
