Bramble






















It's nearly time for one of my favourite free foods to become available: blackberries. Also known as brambles, the Latin binomial is Rubus fructicosa agg. because there are many microspecies in much the same way as for Taraxacum or dandelions. This is because of polyploidy and apomixis (as you know).
The study of brambles is called batology.
