Plant Sciences?

Given the board includes "Flora and Fauna, Birds and Bees," I'm a bit intrigued why it's just called the "Plant Sciences". Am I being pedantic?

No, not pedantic - very observant I'd say. ;D

But does plant sciences then not exclude animals? The forum also includes those

I don't know the 'politics' here myself yet very well but perhaps there's a reason why the forum has not been named more concicely.

A friendly mod will surely be along soon to explain

This has been discussed...I concur with what rationale you used to ask the question. That's all I can say for now !!

I suspect there is some espionage involved here and it is from an outsider who may not be considered a threat among us. I believe the infiltrator to be a plant.

Rereading this thread and my post just now I see what a lot of rubbish and no sense mine above makes. Sometimes I could really slap myself for being so hare brained.

But..... an infiltrator you say Andrew..... and one that is NOT a threat. Now *that* IS highly unusual.



Perhaps the powers that be might yet be amenable to a wee change?

It's been know to happen

sometimes

even with powers that be involved ....

 ;D

Very good Andrew. Or maybe we can all watch an episode of The Bulb and the Beautiful...less dramatic. :)

Teacher thought, "Don't these parents teach their children anything these days" and then replied "Once upon a time there was this little seed." LOL
