It’s time for all our segments! We talk weird chewing gum, South African botanists, biases and answer your questions. Do trees still breathe when they lose their foliage?
Tegan’s favourite plant is Pistacia lentiscus because it’s used to make Mastic, a type of primitive chewing gum. Also check out how chewing gum is made.
Joram presents the life and work of Harriet Margaret Louisa Bolus (1877-1970). Also check out the paper on the contribution of women to naming species.
Tegan talks about how we only care about victims that we can identify.
