WE WELCOME CONTRIBUTIONS THAT FEATURE WILD PLANTS OF THE FINGER LAKES REGION OF N.Y.
We include cryptogams (bryophytes, lichens, fungi, and algae) as “flora,” and recognize that green plants provide habitats and substrates for these and many animals, especially insects. We are interested in zoological and fungal associations as long as plants are an integral part of the story.
WE CAN USE A WIDE SPECTRUM OF MATERIAL IN A VARIETY OF WRITING STYLES. Our regular columns include the NAME THAT PLANT CONTEST (identifying a mystery plant from images), LOCAL FLORA (plant lists from special sites), OUTINGS (reports of FLNPS-sponsored excursions), PRESSING CONCERNS (news from regional herbaria), and PLANT PROFILES (on specific local plants). We also occasionally publish APPRECIATIONS (memorials to local botanists), CHARISMATIC PLANTS (stories about formative early encounters with flora), WILD GARDENING (advice and reports from wild plant gardeners), REVIEWS (of books, talks, workshops, nurseries), FEEDBACK (commentaries and letters to the editor), ESSAYS (on botanical themes), VERSE (haiku, sonnets, and poems of less formal structure), ART (botanical illustrations, plant designs, pencil sketches, decorations), and PHOTOGRAPHS (stand-alone images, photo essays, and full-page composite plates, or originals that can be scanned and returned). We also can always use FILLERS (very short notes, small images, cartoons) for the last few inches of a column.
AT PRESENT WE OPERATE IN A BLACK-AND-WHITE UNIVERSE, so contributors need to plan illustrations for this format.
