Okay, this may be a bit presumptuous of me, but I'm submitting my last three Geo 365 posts, which among other things, show the distribution of ponderosa pines in and around Hole-in-the-Ground, in central Oregon. http://outsidetheinterzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/geo-365-march-20-day-79-south-side.html http://outsidetheinterzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/geo-365-march-21-day-80-north-side.html http://outsidetheinterzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/geo-365-march-22-day-81-debris-apron.html Also, for those interested, day 78 is a view directly into the crater, and shows how to trees peter out to the north. http://outsidetheinterzone.blogspot.com/2013/03/geo-365-march-19-day-78-hole-in-ground.html
fantastic, not presumptuous at all! Thanks.
It's about spring plants, and it's sort of about science, and it has pictures. There's even a bit of geology in it. It's not a scholarly article by any means, and I suppose what this article proves is that it's awfully hard to write satire about some subjects these days. Feel free to include it or not as you find appropriate.
Works for me! quite well actually. Thanks for submitting!
My most recent geology-biology combo: Oregon Trip Day 2: A Hike near Jarbidge across Two Rhyolites; an older, clearer geo-bio association: Mountain Mahogany and Rhyolite. Take your pick!
Thanks, SF, those are wonderful! I have a real fascination with plant-rock matches having spent a lot of time working on edaphic endemics in Wyoming -- we have so many cool examples. I hope to get back to some of those places this summer on my own, camera in hand.
Here a very short post, but I really like this drawing & think it could be appropriate as plants creating their habitat http://historyofgeology.fieldofscience.com/2013/03/tiny-plants-creating-big-rocks.html
