Tom and I have received a request from a retired Bates faculty member
that we think Josses could help us with.
He is to give a lecture in the spring titled: "Cultural Harvest of Land
Preservation". He will talk about how the land itself has the capacity
to astonish people.
He would like to include in his talk an illustration from nature (plants
in particular) of how color is used to seduce or attract an unwitting
predator. He described this as beauty vs terror.
If you know of any such examples in the plant world, please let me
know. Or, any wow-factor factoid in plant relationships too.
Thanks in advance,
