Robert Krulwich has a way with science explanation. Listeners of Radiolab would know this, those of you have yet to experience one of the best podcasts out there, are about to be brought into the light. Robert Krulwich not only cohosts the Radiolab podcast but he also has an excellent blog, Krulwich Wonders, between the two he is able to teach all of the people everything, all of the time. Here is a bit he wrote after he read, What a Plant Knows:A field guide to the senses, the recently popular botanical book.
I’m not the type of botanist that keeps plants in one place, and everything else in another. Along with the ecologists, I understand that all things are connected and even the littlest change can cause a huge affect, therefore I love this Science Daily article about that exact notion, Foundational Concept of Ecology Tested: Purple Loosestrife Altered Life in Nearby Ponds.
I’m going to group these next three together because they might seem like piddly little local articles by themselves. Together they will conquer plant awareness! Botanist to speak at Scientific Illustration Conference, Roadside Plant Preservation , Plant Blindness.
