Colour reproduction has become a vital part of data presentation in many areas of plant science, but remains costly in spite of new printing technologies. To aid authors in the presentation of colour images, we have decided to allow one colour figure free of charge. The colour must be essential to the presentation of the information, and decisions on this will be taken by the editors. Additional colour figures will be charged at the standard rate. A colour work agreement form, which details cost, must be included with all manuscripts containing colour and can be downloaded here. Rapid Publication By improving schedules and increasing the efficiency of operations, we are now able to publish papers Early View within an average of one month from the date of final acceptance, subject to the prompt return of proof corrections.
