For  "pure" academics, peer review is still essential  I expect - but 
there is considerable  precedence now for "simple" publication of work 
by amateur botanists on new species. These are as valuable to those 
growing plants and wanting to understand more about them as articles in 
learned journals and certainly a good deal more accessible to a wider 
I am thinking of species published in the AGS bulletin, for instance and 
recently in IRG. An overly academic approach to this might deliver an 
insurmountable obstacle to  the easy transfer and sharing of information 
- something I think would be a great shame.
