    more homework

    The 4th and 5th edition are companions to the 4th and 5th edition of the seminal work (book) "Plant Physiology" by Lincoln Taiz and Eduardo Zeiger. I highly suggest people purchase the 5th edition of the book (released June 15, 2010) for even more info!

    One can teach themselves most topics of plant physiology using the book and online companion. What is really great about the online companion is it has various sections, such as (from the 5th edition):

    * Topics
    * Essays
    * Study Questions
    * Readings


    The "study questions" section is great! It will allow you to test yourself with the same level of info you would get in many plant physiology classes at a University.

    Of the two editions, the 5th should be your go-to resource, but I will post both for reference.

    Here is the 5th edition of the book: http://www.sinauer.com/detail.php?id=8667

    Here is the online companion to the 5th edition: http://5e.plantphys.net/

    Here is the online companion to the 4th edition: http://4e.plantphys.net/

    Happy reading!!!

      and more

      There is a great movement to put real science in the hands of amateurs, those without advanced degrees, but not any less of real scientists. This topic is pretty vast, so I will post a good starting resource.

      Ex.:

      I do not (yet) have an advanced degree, but that doesn't mean I am any less of a scientist than those with advanced degrees (ex. Doc's, PhD's, etc). A degree alone does not a scientist make. Drive, intelligence and money (for resources) can make a scientist out of anyone without a degree

      Look into "DIY-BIO" if you are interested in that topic:

      * "DIYbio: An Institution for the Amateur Biologist": http://diybio.org/


      The difference between a "professional" and "amateur" biologist is a degree and fancy title, that's it; as long as the amateur has money for resources and equipment...

                      taiz and zeiger is an excellent reference. finding a way to access google scholar articles (like through a university library or something like that) is a must for anyone who wants to better understand the variety of plant sciences that will make you a more informed and better grower.

                          I ran across this while doing some research on germinating seeds and thought others might find it useful.

                          So, in summation: The CIA, with a little help from the Nazis, accidentally helped invent hippies while they were trying to figure out how to brainwash communists.
