The column editor welcomes relevant items, preferably to be sent directly to the OPTIMA Secretariat in Palermo. Sending or having sent copies for review will not only bring your publications to the attention of a large interested audience, it will also ensure that they are present in the to-be central botanical library for the Mediterranean area, at the Herbarium Mediterraneum.
To ensure a quick spread of the information, items will first be added as bibliographic notices. A proper review will be added as soon as time allows. Once every year, the reviewed items in this column will be integrated into the consolidated OPTIMA Newsletter.
