Since its publication, it has been brought to our attention that there is an error in the Meeting report on the 26th New Phytologist Symposium: Bioenergy trees, INRA Nancy France (May 2011) by Herr (2011), where on p. 314 John Ralph has been misquoted. The correct text should read:

During the meeting, John Ralph (University of Wisconsin, USA) perhaps said it best when he stated ‘What we want to do is make lignin that chemically falls apart really easily but remains biologically stable’.

We apologize to our readers for this mistake.
