周二推文 Tuesday Tweets from #IBC2017 Shenzen

Catch up with the blog posts and tweets from the International Botanical Congress in Shenzhen on Tuesday.

We can start with a couple of blog posts. Jeff Ollerton has posted his highlights. One was finding that the cutest pollinator is the elephant shrew. There’s a paper about it in Flora that seems to be free access and has some pictures. The other post is from Pat Heslop-Harrison with plenty of photos. By the time this gets out you’ll have missed him today at Stand E33, but he will be back on Thursday at 12.15.

Starting the Day

There’s a recurring theme among tweets. There’s a plant missing from the IBC, but one person has come prepared.
