Just received the Quarterly in Kent, UK (and had a look at the extended pages on the website). Very exciting stuff! And I do like rosulate violas even if they are next to impossible to tame.

Glad you like the extras on the digital edition - and the third (and final) part of the rosulate viola cycle of articles deals with the annual species. That might seem irrelevant but I have managed to germinate, grow and flower two of these while never getting beyond a couple of germinations of the perennial species. And they are intriguing. I'm hoping that with images of their habitats and John Watson's discussion of these different species that we might gain more insight into what might be done to tame at least one or two of them.

Steve - I had to retrieve the the wrapper from the bin! Once you have your number there is a useful place to write inside the Quarterly for future reference. Someone has thought all this out!

In fact I had to retrieve it from the bin too ;) But I got the idea to write the number inside the Quarterly myself without asking anybody ;D
When I think of it I have to write it down another place to in case of I don't find the Quarterly in the heap of old magazines of different kinds :o

The paper copy arrived here on Vancouver Island today.

I have been marking it up with the extras that are available in the online version. 

For example, at the bottom of page 44 I have written:
online 44a/b  V cotyledon photo, V aizoon photo, V bangii & pygmaea
could be intermediate links.

I realize how much jiggling needs to be done to fit everything onto a printed
page, but would it be possible to fit in something similar so that readers of
the print version know what they are missing?

Thanks for the comment. It is interesting in how you are using the digital and paper editions. I'll look at what it would mean in terms of editing. I'm not sure I had everything finalized for the digital extras by the time I finished the paper edition so it would have been difficult but it was the first issue where this was done on such a major basis. The main thing I was aiming for was that both editions should appear complete and seamless with, so to speak, no ragged edges.

And I do have to say that above all I was just relieved to manage this first edition with everything coming out in the right place in both editions (with both making sense) with no screw-ups !!
