JBRIT: Current Issue

BRIT Press strives to make botanical research accessible to all. For that reason, our publishing model supports open access to all articles for the first 6 months after initial publication (or until the next issue is released). Our non-profit journal, however, is supported entirely by page charges and subscription fees. Keeping page charges at a reasonable level is dependent upon maintaining our subscriptions.

If you enjoy the content found in Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, please consider supporting us through a personal subscription.
