    The encyclopedia should make it alot clearer that the VFT is not a sundew, they are just in the same family and make some sort of reminder that there are lots of different things in the same family, like other examples. I was confussed and thought they were way wrong at first too. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]
    Can anyone see such marvelous things, knowing them to be only plants and feel no wonder?

    Close, it is actually:

    Kingdom, Phylum, class, order, family, genous, species

    But only us biology dorks know that LOL[/QUOTE]

    Yeah, it's one of the things I can spit out fom my un-used Biology degree without using a memory rhyme(like a teacher friend of mine does).

    Regards,

    Joe

    Although if you need a memory rhyme, my 9th grade biology teacher told us to remember :
    King Philip Came Over From Greece Stoned
    Of course at the time I had no idea what that meant. I'd love to see a teacher present that pneumonic in schools today.
