Native Plants Journal publishes research involving pesticides, but such pesticides are not recommended. All uses of pesticides must be registered by appropriate state and/or federal agencies before they can be recommended. Pesticides can injure humans, domestic animals, desirable plants, and fish or other wildlife if improperly handled or applied. Read the pesticide label before purchasing, and use pesticides selectively and carefully. Follow label directions for disposal of surplus pesticides and pesticide containers. C ORRESPONDENCE It has been, weather-wise, a spectacular month of October in northern Idaho. Warm, sunny days and cool evenings brought out some of the best fall foliage colors I can remember in my 30 years living in the state. But, those vivid colors are a reminder that this year is quickly coming to a close, and soon the gray days of winter will be here. With that, we close out Volume 14 of the Native Plants Journal. It is hard for me to believe the journal has been going that long . . . let me just say that I have gone through a lot of red ink! Keeping the journal relevant, on time, and of high quality takes a team. I would be remiss if I did not thank my associate editors, Diane Haase, Rosemary Pendleton, Deborah Rogers, Nancy Shaw, Daniela Shebitz, Steven Smith, and Sandra Wilson for their efforts. A special thank you to Jason Gray and his capable staff at the University of Wisconsin Press for their diligence and professionalism, and to Candace Akins, my trusted and dependable managing editor, without whom I would be lost. A hearty thank you to the reviewers who graciously gave of their time and expertise to review manuscripts: Julie Beaudin, Jay F Bolin, John Brissette, Michelle Cram, Roseann Densmore, Rebecca Dolan, Bob Edgin, Kern Ewing, Matthew W Fidelibus, Jason Goldman, Robert Grese, Danny Gustafson, Sarah Hamman, Gary Hawley, Bill Hoch, April Hulet, Randy Johnson, Thomas A Jones, Olga A Kildisheva, Jennifer Kujawski, Genhua Niu, Jeff Ott, RN Reese, Rich Regan, Bryce Richardson, Joseph G Robins, Larry A Rupp, Joshua Sloan, Forrest S Smith, and Robert Tripepi.
