Dear Friends,
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,
Susan Hayward
