The Week in Botany
The links here are the stories I see shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. That means sometimes I’ll get a surprise when I miss a story and see lots of other people sharing it. I don’t always understand what is getting shared or why, so the descriptions are usually modified from the web pages. Sometimes that’s tricky, like this week, where I have no clue what one paper is describing. It’s an example of ‘the wisdom of crowds’.
Why should I be so confident in the wisdom of crowds? This week I’ve been in competition with many slugs in the garden, and they’ve been beating me comfortably.
I’ll be back next week with more of the stories and papers you’re sharing.
