New Special Issue: Plant Mating Systems

We have a new special issue out on Plant Mating Systems, with a couple of free access posts. Gynodioecy to dioecy: are we there yet? by Rachel B. Spigler and Tia-Lynn Ashman is a review of the evolution of sexes and sexual strategies in plants. The natural history of pollination and mating in bird-pollinated Babiana (Iridaceae), by de Waal, Anderson and Barrett remains free access, as is Karron et al’s introduction to the issue.

You can access the journal at our site, and there are summaries of the papers on what will be our expanding Special Issues section of the blog.

When he's not the web developer for AoB Blog, Alun Salt researches something that could be mistaken for the archaeology of science. His current research is about whether there's such a thing as scientific heritage and if there is how would you recognise it?
