Botanical Accuracy Blog
The Botanical Accuracy Blog is a reference source for finding errors and common misconceptions in the world of plants and plant products. Such mistakes or inaccuracies are usually due to a lack of botanical knowledge or expertise, because as a society, and within the science world, botanical studies are often overlooked. While there may be a natural interest in learning about animal and human biology, plants play a key role in our lives. We interact with plants on a daily basis: we eat them, paint them, plant them, extract their chemicals, and use them in other numerous ways. As sustainability practices and the impact of climate change on the environment become increasingly pressing issues, it is vital that we understand how plants and wildlife will be affected. Time to learn some botany!
