  • Will the poplar vortex hurt invasive insects or kill pesky ticks?

    Will the polar vortex hurt invasive insects or kill pesky ticks?
    A few weeks ago on Ira Flatow’s Science Friday there was an interview with research biologist Rob Venette from the U.S. Forest Service in Minnesota that addressed the effect temperature has on certain insects.

  • Orchids determined by the bloom

    Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid?
    Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.  For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals.  
    Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside which cradles the bloom as it opens.
    You will understand this nuance if you have ever observed the slow transformation of an opening bloom.
