The first issue of Acta Botanica Weberi – a new journal devoted to Dr. Weber’s works – has been published and available as a free download here.
Acta Botanica Weberi is published by members of the Weber family. It was specifically founded to publish hitherto unpublished papers by William A. Weber. At the age of 99, Dr. Weber cannot wait on the peer review process to see his latest writings published if they are not to become posthumous works. Instead he and we feel that publication in this form to be the most appropriate at his age. The resulting dissemination of these works among his botanical colleagues, known and unknown, and the uses, references and discussions thus arising will be enough of a peer review and contribute to the continuing endeavors to research scientific questions.
