This issue of Botanic Gardens Micropropagation News (BGMN) is published by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in association with Botanic Gardens Conservation International.
BGMN is also available on the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, World Wide Web (WWW) server. The address of the Kew WWW server is http:/www.rbgkew.org.uk. BGMN can be found under Scientific Research/ Publications. Volume 1(8) has also be put on the server. We hope that by publishing in this way we will be able to reach a wider audience than with the printed version without increasing printing and distribution costs. We would be pleased to hear any comments or suggestions for improvement of the layout of the electronic document. We would also like to hear from you if you no longer require the printed copy of BGMN and would be happy to only receive the WWW version. Comments and suggestions should be sent to Peter Atkinson (email email@example.com).
We acknowledge with thanks the assistance of Rachel Przeslawki in the production of this issue.
The layout of this edition of the newsletter has been simplified to reduce production time. Papers are now printed in single column format but recent references are still in two columns to allow as many references as possible to be included in each issue.
