2024 AJB Synthesis papers and the AJB Synthesis Prize
The American Journal of Botany welcomes applications for our 2024 AJB Synthesis papers and the AJB Synthesis Prize to showcase early-career scientists.
The AJB Synthesis section features invited contributions by early-career scientists that concisely summarize and synthesize a focal research area or question. These articles summarize recent research and provide new insights that advance the field. Contributions focus on newly emerging areas or provide new perspectives on established areas. Authors are encouraged to express a personal perspective, while maintaining a balanced view of the field. Syntheses should be single authored, no longer than 3,000 words, written so they are accessible to the broad readership of the journal, and have informative and creative visuals. All Synthesis papers accepted for publication and published in fall 2024 through spring 2025 will be considered for the AJB Synthesis Prize.
Applications are due 16 February 2024.

AJB SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS
We are pleased to announce a call for papers for a special issue of the American Journal of Botany, “Understanding novel fire regimes using plant trait-based approaches.” This special issue aims to showcase studies using trait-based approaches to understand fire–plant dynamics from evolutionary, ecological, organismal, physiological, fire management, and conservation perspectives. We welcome studies using a diversity of approaches, including experiments, field studies, restoration projects, syntheses, and reviews. Given that altered fire regimes are global phenomena, we strive for a special issue with a global perspective.
