| December 8, 2018

Crystal ball gazing is the theme for this issue, the last of our 60th year. We haven’t asked our writers to look 60 years into the future – 2078 is just too far ahead although I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t have to listen to anyone telling me what we got wrong! Professor Graham Matthews is […]

I was always told that studying Latin would be good for a science career so I have for a long time now believed pheromones are not biopesticides. The word pesticide is derived from Latin – ‘pestis’ meaning ‘plague’ and ‘cide’ from caedere ‘to kill’. Semiochemicals do not kill when used as control agents –they simply […]
