  • Botany | Coyote Crossing | Page 2
    a threatening phone call from a GMO friendly member of the Royal Society which had formed a Swift Boat style Rebuttal Unit to counter criticisms of GMOs Which is very much reminiscent of the experience of UC Berkeley s Ignacio Chapela who found GMO drifted genes in theoretically GMO free maize in Mexico The GM industry and its partisans waged an unsuccessful dirty tricks style campaign to keep Nature from publishing Chapela s findings and then eventually forced Nature to partially retract Chapela s paper the first time the journal had ever done such a thing and based on the objection of a single reviewer Shorter me I have some concerns about the safety of GMOs based on our rudimentary understanding of how gene expression may be affected by change in a single gene but not enough to make me want to ban research or completely rule out use of GMOs in daily life altogether But add the profit motive and the ability to patent lifeforms and you get attempts by individual corporations to corner the worldwide market in one species after another which is bad for farmers and consumers and you also get thuggish attempts to subvert independent research which is bad for science Share this Email Like this Like Loading This entry was posted in Uncategorized and tagged Botany Politics Science on December 22 2008 by Chris Clarke Yucca jaegeriana by Chris Clarke A kind reader sent me the article I asked for in this post and I ve filed it away in the database Most of the writing I do as regards the paper will be for the book but it s relatively big news and I just have to engage in the sobersided serious botanist version of a squee Taxonomists are forever arguing over whether certain closely related groups of organisms actually belong to the same species or genus or family or name your taxon The received wisdom is that these taxonomists tend to settle out into two roughly delineated groups called lumpers and splitters In reality there are taxonomists who maintain that there are several distinct kinds of both lumpers and splitters Other taxonomists maintain that as few researchers advocate either splitting or combining all taxa but rather make deliberate choices to lump or split based on the facts of the individual cases that in reality lumpers and splitters should properly be considered members of their parent clade taxonomists and the split between lumpers and splitters be deemed obsolete Where was I Oh yeah Joshua trees These matters are rarely settled easily I would imagine that there may be significant argument among Yucca experts as to whether the paper referenced above is authoritative There s plenty of room for further study Olle Pellmyr s work on the two species of moths that each pollinate their own distinct population of Joshua tree and the differences in both insect and floral morphology that have arisen between the two populations suggest the possibility of reproductive isolation But the
