  • Ants on vetch Many wild plants are important in the environment because of their special associations with beneficial insects which in turn pollinate or protect crops. This short clip showing ants visiting extra-floral nectaries on Common vetch plants.
  • Ants visit vetch extrafloral nectaries in Marion County, Ohio, USA June 14, 2009 Narrow-leaved vetch (Vicia angustifolia) is a low-growing herb in the legume family (Fabaceae) that bears extrafloral nectaries at the base of the leaves. Here in an open meadow, ants visit the nectaries. It is generally the case that, by providing a food source for ants, the plant receives a benefit: protection by the ants from plant-eating predators.
  • Down House - Home of Charles Darwin Charles Darwin is a hero of mine (and, of course, many others) and this is where he lived and worked with his family. He is best known for his book On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection and his travels that included the Galapagos Islands, but I like to think that I can actually visit the place where he did much of his work and wrote, amongst other things, The Origin. Darwin didn't have full understanding and I give an example of that, but that doesn't mean all his ideas were wrong. It is a strength of science that we build on past knowledge and understanding to gain a better and more complete view of the world (and, dare I say, our place in it). I think I sound a bit strange (!), but I am recovering for an infection. I meant to say that the ant was taken in a local churchyard, that is, local to me, not Down House. All photos were taken on a film camera a few years ago and digitised. Link to information on Down House: www.english- If you are in or visit this part of the UK, I would recommend making Down House part of your itinerary. Thanks for watching.
