On the cover Meaningful Colors. Golden and blue fluorescence of berberine stained stem leaves and paraphyllia of Thuidium tamariscinum (Hedw.) Br. Eur. differentiates unipapillose cells of the leaf blade from those building up the nerves. [Author: Magdalena Turzańska]

On the cover we present new ASBP logo, a symbol of our journal activity, publishing continuously the results of research. It pertains to indeterminate growth of the plant apical meristem producing lateral organ primordia in a regular sequence. The primordia layout is unique. It is rarely observed in nature transient state between two consecutive expressions of the main Fibonacci phyllotaxis.

On the cover Lagging behind the glow of Tiffany Blue – specimen of leafy liverwort Nowellia curvifolia (Dics.) Mitt., collected by Wiesław Fałtynowicz in Wigry National Park, Poland, observed under UV in fluorescent microscope. Blue fluorescence of the youngest parts of growing gametophyte is probably due to a dense cytoplasmic content of the cells. These contrast nicely with the berberine stained, amber cell walls of the older leaves and rhizoids.

On the cover Living fractal – a recursive self-similarity manifested beautifully in unfurling of the rachis but also of the pinnae in a bipinnate frond of Dryopteris filix-mas.

Erratum The fern shown on the cover of ASBP issue Vol. 80, No. 3 (2011) has been erroneously identified. The frond with characteristically undulated pinnae belongs to Matteuccia struthiopteris (L.) Todaro.
