Special Issue Call for Papers: AJB and APPS
We are pleased to announce a joint call for papers for special issues of the American Journal of Botany and Applications in Plant Sciences, “Twice as Nice: New techniques and discoveries in polyploid biology.” These special issues aim to showcase new methods and resources available for research into polyploidy and the substantial advances in our understanding of polyploid taxa from across a range of studies. AJB seeks submissions on topics related to polyploid biology: new analyses as well as reviews and meta-analyses that explore questions related to polyploidy. APPS welcomes new techniques and software, as well as reviews and thorough comparisons of existing techniques to point the community to best practices.
APPS Special Issue Call for Papers
We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue of Applications in Plant Sciences, “From Theory to Practice: New Innovations and Their Application in Conservation Biology.” This special issue will feature new techniques and approaches across multiple disciplines (from physiology to evolution) and scales of inquiry (from individual plants to global perspectives), with a central focus on the development and dissemination of new methods and perspectives in conservation biology. We welcome new techniques, as well as reviews and thorough comparisons of existing techniques to point the community to best practices.
