Have you heard about division planes in growing leaves? Well, you should have, because we literally talked about this yesterday on the blog. If you’re not doing your homework, I don’t see why we should put in an effort to educate you. Just kidding, we repeat everything that was written yesterday (and more!)

Paper of the week is also yesterday’s blog post: Whitewoods, C. D., Gonçalves, B., Cheng, J., Cui, M., Kennaway, R., Lee, K., … Coen, E. (2020). Evolution of carnivorous traps from planar leaves through simple shifts in gene expressionScience367(6473), 91–96.
