APPS SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS: “Resilient botany: Innovation in the face of limited mobility and resources”
We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue of Applications in Plant Sciences, “Resilient botany: Innovation in the face of limited mobility and resources.” This special issue aims to showcase a collection of articles describing how botanists have creatively leveraged resources at hand to continue their research in the face of restricted mobility, limited funding, and disrupted supply chains. Our intent is for the issue to span diverse topics and scales across botanical research; we welcome novel laboratory, field, herbarium techniques, new software, and mini-reviews.
APPS SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS: “Advances in Plant Imaging across Scales”
Applications in Plant Sciences (APPS) is accepting proposals for a special issue: "Advances in Plant Imaging across Scales." The goal of this special issue is to explore how new imaging technologies are enabling novel research into plant form and function, genomics, ecology, and evolution. The issue will highlight novel imaging and image processing techniques targeted to plants at any scale of organization. We encourage the submission of new tools, techniques, protocols, software/pipelines, and reviews of imaging techniques or image processing.
