DescriptionThe focus for this issue is an interesting group of plants-- the "willows". Although willows have many uses, the one that brings them their "highest level of sophistica- tion" is as the raw material for cricket bats. Somebody, somewhere must make cricket bats from something other than wiliow (to the cricket aficionado this is likely akin to making a baseball bat from something other than wood from the ash tree--for ball players of my generation anyway!). But the traditional wood, used for more than a century, was and is from willows.
