30th anniversary, 100th published issue!

The nucleus of this secretory cell, from a floral nectary of a “coral tree,” curiously took the form of a heart. The heart traditionally invokes passion and love; passion, which surely nurtured all those who contributed to Acta Botanica Brasilica over the last 30 years.
