Do the Macaranga

Well, actually, this is the Macaranga, not the Macarena, but just as worth dancing for. The Macaranga and close relatives are often used symbiotically with ants and other insects.

Euphoric for Euphorbia Set 1!

Join us in transcribing the Euphorbiaceae, or Spurge, family, an extensive flowering family. In this group, we find plants from the genus Euphorbia, for which the family Euphorbiaceae was named. The botanical name Euphorbia derives from Euphorbos, the Greek physician of king Iuba (or Juba) II of Numidia (52–50 BC – 23 AD). Euphorbos wrote that one of the cactus-like Euphorbias was a powerful laxative.
