Scioly this season is over for me, but Im still studying.

Anyone have a fast way to identify the seeds of plants? It trips me up everytime.
I'm actually studying that right now. I'll try to let you know in a week. 8-)

Can you hear me now?
Raging at Macs stupidness.
Copy and paste geez.
This Haiku was dedicated to how Macs have to actually save pictures and then insert them into a file rather than Right clicking and copy pasting. So user-unfriendly.

Thank you so much! On another note, most of the seeds of plants look awfully similar, even when magnified.

In addition, I've seen a test from a highly competitive invitational in which the students actually had to identify a species that was a biological control/vector of an invasive.
Is this allowed? It has the potential to make tests a lot harder...

Yeah why not? It makes sense. Was it Nitidulidae? That's pretty common.

It was a species of bamboo--lucky bamboo. It was a vector of an invasive, apparently.

Nitidulidae is a vector for Oak Wilt, correct?

What was the invasive out of curiosity? I've never heard of Lucky Bamboo before this.

And now I'm feeling even more underprepared :(
EDIT: I can now conclude that the seeds of plants of the invasives are, for the most part, drastically different.
