Blog Post Image: New Plant Species from the Heart of Texas

Botanist Lynn Bohs, a University of Utah biology professor shown here in a campus greenhouse, has published a new study that identifies a new and prickly species named Solanum cordicitum (not shown in photo). The word cordicitum is derived from Latin for “from the heart” because two of the three known speciments of the possibly endangered plant were found in the tiny west Texas town of Valentine.
