Botanist backs conservation of threatened flowers
The New York Botanical Gardenwith co-author Fabián Michelangeli and in collaboration with three other global institutions. It was published in Brittonia. Descriptions, field photos, microscope images, illustrations and maps of where the species are found are available online for scientists and the public to access.
Tiernan's study was part of the National Science Foundation's (NSF's) Planetary Biodiversity Inventory, a global effort from 2004–2009 to examine select plants or animals, including plant bugs, goblin spiders, slime molds and catfish. Only 5 to 15 percent of all life on the planet has been discovered and described, according to the NSF. These inventories can help scientists answer the most basic biodiversity questions, understand and predict changes, and conduct similar inventories.
Tiernan is studying plumeria shrubs at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden as part of her doctoral research. Her graduate advisor is Javier Francisco-Ortega. She is a Ph.D student in the International Center for Tropical Botany at The Kampong, a partnership between FIU and the National Tropical Botanical Garden.

Stunning streetscapes are inspiration for gardeners
They reached out to Tend Living’s Britton Neubacher to collaborate and, voila! The bare wall soon sprouted a magnificent living wall.Such a bright white, south-facing exposure brings the twin challenges of intense light and intense heat. Infrastructure is critical. The living wall’s backbone is a grid of 88 Wooly Pocket’s rigid Living Wall Planters. Each planter includes its own water reservoir, and all are connected to drip irrigation that runs once a week.Neubacher selected tough, sun-loving succulents (including cactuses) and sun-tolerant bromeliads. She focused on both texture and color (fitting for a store named “Pigment”), then arranged plants along a diagonal to counter the grid’s horizontal and vertical linearity.The result is just plain fun.Plants in this living wall include: Agave attenuata, Aeonium ‘Zwartkopf’, Portulacaria afra ‘Variegata’, several kinds of Sedum including orange Sedum nussbaumerianum and hanging donkey tail Sedum morganianum, different kinds of Echeveria, small aloes, Euphorbia ‘Sticks on Fire,’ Asparagus densiflorus ‘Myers’ asparagus fern, several variety of Crassula, smal...

Diggin' In: Wild petunia provides pretty summer flowers
A relative of Carolina wild petunia, Mexican petunia (Ruellia brittoniana) is native to Mexico. Listed as invasive in several states, the aggressive annual _ or perennial further south _ and its popular cultivar called Purple Showers is sold along with other cultivars, including the poplar Wave petunias.
The garden petunia (Petunia x hybrida) is not closely related, and is actually a member of the potato family, which includes tobacco, tomatoes and chili peppers, according to Hamilton.
Carolina wild petunia is sometimes sold in garden centers, and is often found in native plant sales or online nurseries. Deer do not bother the fuss-free plant.
COMMON BUCKEYE BUTTERFLY
Common buckeye butterflies are easy to spot _ brown wings bordered with cream, yellow or orange and several prominent eyespots, which may help protect them from hungry birds, according to Hamilton.
On the ground, common buckeye, or Junonia coenia, usually rests with open wings on bare ground or low plants, especially mountain mints, plantains, asters, tickseed sunflower, sedum and dogbane.
"Since adults live only a few days, usually no more than 10, they are very interested in mating," says Hamilton.
"Male buckeyes perching on low ground are watching for females; they will chase away another male buckeye and encourage a female buckeye to land where mating can occur."
After mating, female buckeyes deposit just one tiny whitish egg on a leaf bud or the upper side of a leaf. As they progress through four moltings, the larvae (caterpillars) are black with rows of orange and cream spots from which emerge short hairy black spines, continues Hamilton. The head is also black with an orange spot and two short black spines on top. Larvae transform into pupae where metamorphosis is completed _ May through October, two to three broods appear.
Page 2 of 2 - Female buckeyes lay their eggs only on the plants that the developing caterpillars will eat. In Hampton Roads, Wild petunia (Ruellia caroliniensis) is a favorite host plant along with smooth beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis) and blue vervain (Verbena hastata), says Hamilton.

High Times Medical Cannabis Cup smokes out San Bernardino
All-Pro rusher with the New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins; Kyle Turley, former All-Pro offensive lineman with the Saints and other teams; Eben Britton, former offensive lineman with the Jaguars and Bears; and Nathan Jackson, former tight end with Broncos.
“This is not a lifestyle choice, this is a health choice,” Turley said. “I care about my life and want to live as long as possible.”
Turley earlier in the discussion said NFL coaches had used the drug, and he felt the NFL was “waiting for the legalization process” before it would go ahead and be fine with its players using it.
Williams added that the use of cannabis helped him in his career. He joined other panelists in denouncing other medications prescribed by the NFL, saying “I agree pain pills suck.”
About 50 people attended the late afternoon panel, as well as another titled “Live recording of Free Weed From Danny Danko.” But not all of the panels went off as planned.
“The CA 2016 Legalization Roundtable: Understanding the Adult Use of Marijuana Initiatives” had a table with four empty chairs and at 2:30 p.m., after the panel was scheduled to start at 2 p.m.
Additionally, without a medical marijuana wristband, people including the media were out of luck to browse the medical areas.
From the outside, one could hear chest-caving bass from current hip-hop songs, a DJ yelling about “free dabs” and large fencing to keep you from looking inside.
Kaloha said inside people were receiving free samples of edible cannabis, wax and flowers to consume despite the Cannabis Cub website telling attendees there was no free marijuana.
John Ponder, age 27, and Audra Lambert, 25, both of Dallas, Texas, said they did not know they needed a California medical card to get inside the medical area after buying tickets to enter the event. And since they were from out of the state, they said they were denied the chance to get one.
“I would like to at least walk around,... (San Bernardino County Sun)Feb 2, 2016
