In this issue R. B. Williams takes us deep into the London Clay, providing much-needed nomenclatural and biographical tabular indexes to J. S. Bowerbank's A History of the Fossil Fruits and Seeds of the London Clay (1840). Then Sandra Mesquita, Cristina Castel-Branco and Miguel Menezes de Sequeira take us to Madeira as they trace the beautiful Musschia aurea, Madeira giant bellflower, through the botanical literature of the 18th and 19th centuries. If you're ready to take us on a new adventure in the pages of our journal of botanical history, check out the topics and submission guidelines available on the Huntia page.
