Current Issue

    The BRIT Press strives to make botanical research accessible to all. For that reason, we make all articles in the current issue available online for free for a limited time (~6-mo). Our journal, however, is supported entirely by page charges and subscription fees. Keeping page charges at a reasonable level is dependant upon maintaining our subscriptions.
