The Plant Press is the quarterly newsletter from the Department of Botany and the U.S. National Herbarium. The purpose of The Plant Press is to provide information about the activities of Botany. Printed issues include articles about staff research and travel, visitors, new publications, and plant conservation highlights, many of which will be highlighted on this website. In-depth insight in the world of botany is provided by the Chair of Botany. A profile of a staff member or unit is covered in most issues, and the printed issues conclude with a piece of artwork from Botany's resident artist Alice Tangerini.
