First plant to use buried leaves to catch worms found - life - 09 January 2012 - New Scientist

First plant to use buried leaves to catch worms found - life - 09 January 2012 - New Scientist | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

A sticky end awaits worms that stray too close to a scrawny-looking plant unique to Brazil. Philcoxia minensis is the first carnivorous plant discovered to trap and devour prey in the soil with the help of sticky leaves prodded below the surface.

Old writer on the block: Looking at pollen grains

Old writer on the block: Looking at pollen grains | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

The first thing you need is a collection of flowers. I use a set of neat little plastic containers that screw together. They are sitting on my desk as I write this, and the top two contain millipedes that I collected this morning, and which may be the basis of a future entry, depending on what I can see.

Digital scholarship will not be funded by the toothfairy: it is now time for academics online to tackle the economics of the digital field. | Impact of Social Sciences | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

Digital technologies are becoming an integral part of scholarly activities and open access scholarship has an important role to play in the digital scholar’s workload but academics must think of how the economics of this will work. Gill Kirrup asks, who will pay for digital scholarship?

Old writer on the block: Making your own microscope

Old writer on the block: Making your own microscope | Plant Cell Biology | Scoop.it

Remember that good work can be done with just a single lens. Anton van Leeuwenhoek did amazing work in the 1600s with single lenses, and the tradition continues. Try a web search on <water drop microscope> and discover some neat designs for one-lens microscopes. Or read this, which appeared first in Charles Dickens' Household Words and then was reprinted in Scientific American, November 4, 1854, p. 64. Maybe you can see how to make such a "microscope" yourself.
