On the cover Lateral branch of Wollemia nobilis W. G. Jones, K. D. Hill & J. M. Allen terminating in a male cone. The tree is a hero of fantastic story telling how the Jurassic gymnosperm became an extant plant. Now recommended as a new Christmas tree. This specimen, grown outdoors near Wrocław town in Lower Silesia, Poland, produced many cones last summer, but had to be moved indoors for the winter.
