Phylogenetic tree of tomatoes (Solanum lycopersicum), drawn using neighbor-joining method. The tree illustrates the evolutionary history of tomatoes in the simplest form ever, so that even Bill Ryerson will understand (in response to his picture caption in Grad Symposium 2012) - Hamid Razifard

From one of the miniature plants of South Africa’s Knersvlakte, these immature leaves stand less than 2 inches tall. Yet as they mature, they transform from folded ribbons to crimped extensions to long and flattened, fully-expanded leaves with only an occasional wrinkle, pointing out from the quartz gravel like TV antennae! - Kerri Mocko
