Preparing teaching materials *all-the-ways* for next semester, and thought I'd start sharing why this zoologist fell in love with #plants

Exhibit A - The nettle.

Defends itself with trichome cells encased in biologically-synthesised glass (silica)...what the what?

1/5
When you touch the trichomes, they lacerate your skin, breaking the silica casing & releasing the chemical contents into your dermal tissue.

The stinging sensation = organic acids. Chemical weapons may seem OTT, but when you can't run away, things get serious, quick.

2/5
The nettle has also weaponised a communication compound commonly associated with your immune system - histamine.

The histamine that is released from the trichome into your dermal tissue tells your tissue to become more permeable, allowing the organic acids to spread.

#CuratedTruth

"#Homoeopathy is a branch of universal #medicine based on the ‘principle of the like’ (Similia Similibus Curentur = Like treats Like) and in #minimum doses." .. I
It means that a #substance in a massive dose generates #pathological #symptomatology; has the possibility to #cure it, if applied in the #minimum doses obtained by #dilution and intense #agitation, in other words, #homoeopathic #succussion. .. II
#Homoeopathy is derived from a #Hippocratic #concept developed by the #German #physician, Samuel Hahnemann (1755–1843), with serially #diluted #medicines (1:9, 1:99, 1:999 and others) in water-ethanol vehicle alternating #dilution with #succussion. .. III

#WorldEnvironmentDay2020 we bring you the story of #Mumbai's only #botanicalgarden, one of its most important environmental assets. Read the thread to know more about the founding of this important #green lung which was established together with #BDLMuseum in late 19th century
The Veermata Jijabai Bhonsale Udyan, formerly known as Victoria Gardens, was established with the #BDLMuseum as it's sister institution, enabling each other as "a Hall of Wonder and a Garden of Delight".
#WorldEnvironmentDay2020 @mybmc #botanicalgarden
A group of #Mumbai's eminent citizens- Dr. Bhau Daji Lad, #DavidSassoon, #JamsetjeeJeejeebhoy, and Sir #GeorgeBirdwood, later curator of the #BDLMuseum, decided to establish a botanical garden and a museum to study the #flora, #fauna and #culture of the Bombay Presidency.

There's been a story in a UK tabloid (that I won't name), and @BBCRadio4 of all places; that #rocket #salad causes #cancer due to high levels of #nitrates in the leaves. Here's my take, and what's wrong with the thinking behind it.

A thread.

1/12
It's true, #rocket #leaves are hyperaccumulators of #nitrates ; this isn't anything new. It's been known for a long time. Other crops with high nitrate content include #spinach and #watercress

2/12
Nitrate content varies according to where the #crop is grown, and is closely tied to the soil #plants are grown in, and the amount of #light they receive. Rocket leaves grown in #winter have higher nitrate content than those grown in #summer

PARASITIC PLANTS! A thread on why cheating beats competing, for the dodder parasite @jianqiang_wu @MikeAxtell @RunoSteven @kevinfolta @LynnSosnoskie @plantae_org @ASPB @PlantTeaching @QUBIGFS @FrontYoungMinds #Plants #PlantSci #Parasite
For the younger readers out there, a plain language summary on how a plant, commonly called the ‘dodder’ can steal its food and water from other plants, courtesy of the fantastic resource at @FrontYoungMinds doi.org/10.3389/frym.2… I am also super proud to be an editor here!
The dodder (Cuscuta campestris, or any of the other Cuscuta species) is a parasite, it needs to steal all its food and resource from other plants. The adaptations required to live like this make for a lot of really interesting behavioural contrasts!

Don't know if you guys like pant sketches, but I drew some a while ago for fun! I rarely get to draw separate items so doing this was nice. I got inspired by real flora but messed with the size and shape. 🌵

Now that it's spring, we focus on our landscaping. Put yourself in #Hillary's shoes two years ago at this time. Which "plant" did she and the #DeepState pick for her garden of evil (aka, the "coup" against #Trump)?
To help you in giving an informed response, research these connections:
- #PaulManafort and The #PodestaGroup
