Happy Fascination of Plants Day!
Today is the fifth international ‘Fascination of Plants Day‘ launched by plant scientists across the world under the umbrealla of the European Plant Science Organisation (EPSO). To celebrate plants, here is a collection of the beautiful plant pictures that we received from authors during the past year! You can also have a look at this post in tribute to plants that we previously published on the blog!
