The Journal of Japanese Botany
The Journal of Japanese Botany was started by Tomitaro Makino in April 1916. He edited the Journal through vol. 8 in 1933. Subsequently, the Journal has been edited by the Editorial Board from vol. 9 no. 1 in May 1933 to the present issue. The Editorial Board has been represented by Yasuhiko Asahina (1933–1975), Hiroshi Hara (1975–1987), Shoji Shibata (1987–2006), and Hiroyoshi Ohashi (2006–present). The Journal was published first by Makino’s company, ‘Shokubutsu-Kenkyû-Zasshi-Sha,’ then by Tsumura Laboratory from vol. 3 in 1926 and further by Tsumura & Co. from vol. 81 in 2006. The Journal has promoted the development of research and the study of systematic botany, pharmacognosy and related disciplines. It is among the highly regarded journals in its field.
