Seeking Graduate Student Book Reviewers for Economic Botany

Seeking Graduate Student Book Reviewers for Economic Botany 

by John de la Parra

Hello everyone!

Wendy Applequist, the book review editor for Economic Botany, has asked that we get a student book review program going to correspond with the journal’s student reviewer program.

She has a fairly diverse selection of books available for review at the moment. The newly posted list is available at:

http://www.econbot.org/index.php?module=content&type=user&func=view&pid=22

Wendy will go through every review and suggest minor or major edits– so if someone isn’t sure how to write a good review, the opportunity to work with an editor to develop that skill will be there. It’s also a minor CV line and a free book.

I encourage anyone who would like to review one of the listed books to contact Wendy (wendy.applequist@mobot.org) right away!

Here are some examples of books to be reviewed:
