Welcome to the 22nd edition of the Berry Go Round, a blog carnival devoted to all plants’ life… The previous edition can be found here. November brings a new yield of fresh plant science, and here it is:
- Discover, at Dave Ingram’s Natural History Blog how plants’ and sunbathers’ interests can result in conflicts of the highest importance. And fortunately, consensus may emerge (with plants victory of course).
- Jeremy, at Vaviblog, puts vetches on the table, and demonstrates how the quest for vetches vegs ancestry is not necessarily Oedipian, but sometimes Herculean…
- Sarcozona, at Gravity’s Rainbow, reminds us of Flabellidium spinosum, a now most probably extinct Andean moss.
- At the Primate Diaries, Eric is offering a detailed review of Plants and Empire: Colonial Bioprospecting in the Atlantic World. A treaty in Agnotology…
- Also, don’t forget quizzes at Get your Botany On!
- All in G… (Guttiferaceae, Garcinia tinctoria (xynthochymus), Gamboge) at Anthrome,
- while Net World Directory stands with Ceraria namaquensis and its spines (?).
- Moss Plants and More has an interesting post with regard to Physcomitrella patens, the model organism moss. Which, just like Drosophila and even worst, is not monophylous (the issue with Drosophila was mostly on taxonomic grounds, this one may really be at odds with the science results behind…).
- EEB & Flow explores underground interactions in plants and takes the theme at its roots….
- … While the Phytophactor digs into tropics topics (and C U 2).
- Now, this is a grading era for teachers around, and we have two posts dealing with botanical exams: a case where pink or blue paper form matters (with a test for you!), and another on gems originating from such exams…
And at the very last, here is another banner for the BGR (many thanks to Kirk from The Wild Edge)… We have too few proposition to make a competition and have a winner, so if you feel like you want to design one, please submit us your work and disseminate it until a few banners become in use!
