Welcome to the Journal of Maple Seed Science. The journal is one way for you to publish your work with maple seeds on the web. We welcome your contributions, from designs of flying toys to experiments in biology and physics. We hope you will show us connections between science, technology, design and society that the simple elegance of a whirling maple seed can inspire. Please share your vision!
