Dear Bean Bag Fellow,
This has been a year of many happenings in the legume community as you can appreciate in this issue; starting with organizational changes in the Bean Bag, continuing with sad news from the US where one of the most renowned legume fellows passed away later this year, moving to miscellaneous communications from all corners of the World, and concluding with the traditional list of legume bibliography.
Indeed the Bean Bag has undergone some organizational changes. As the new editor, first of all, I would like to thank Dr. Lulu Rico and Dr. Gwilym Lewis very much for kindly inviting me to take on the lead of The Bean Bag. I very appreciate this opportunity; connecting with the wonderful community of legume aficionados! I am myself a legume aficionada, in love with the caesalpinioid legume genus Senna as well as with those small secretory structures called extrafloral nectaries and found across the entire family. As a member of the Legume Phylogeny and the Legume Morphology working groups - of which you will read some news in this issue – it is an is an honor for me to continue the legacy of the Bean Bag.
Second, the Bean Bag will continue to work as usual with the difference that the newsletter and important communications will be send out through new BB Google Group to which BB members have been added earlier this year. This is the only purpose of the google group. For any correspondence about the BB, members are invited to email the editor at the new BB address <email>.
Finally, I am very grateful to all contributors of this issue for sharing their news, insights, images and publication citations. Note that this newsletter will be made available for online download on the BB webpage along with the pdfs of all previous issues: <web address>.
Thank you very much for your consideration and I wish you Very Happy Holidays and Very Happy New Year!
