Palaeobotany[edit]

While I appreciate what a good going over the article has received I think maybe the removal of the palaeobotanical section might go too far. I think the palaeobotany of a plant has a place in its article. I have more material on that. There is so much work here. I have started again with Prunus africana and I will be working back to this article with a view of keeping it mainly but working in some archaeological mentions besides the very brief terremare one left in.Dave 20:53, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

  • I'd personally welcome more information on that, especially trees spread through Europe after the last glacial maximum and which areas acted as a refuge to it. I'd expect that West Asia would have been the refuge and then it spread across the rest of Europe via birds.

The Green Dye syndrome[edit]

I've been waiting for you experienced botanical Wikipedians to spot the problem with Plants for a Future Database but so far no one has. So I need to point it out. Those birds just took one page and duplicated possibly hundreds of times and have not gone over it to work out the bugs. Every page says the same thing over and over with but minor modifications no matter what the plant. I have read about the green dye so often I look in the mirror and see green dye and think I am getting sick from cyanide poisoning. Come now, ALL of Prunus is not used for making green dye! And then there is the part about the cyanide. I will never dare to eat another cherry again because ALL of Prunus has the deadly cyanide in its seeds and leaves and no one should ever - what ever? - no never - eat any Prunus any more. So I think we can just throw Plants for a Database out as a valid source for any information on plants at all. As I work through here again I am taking out the green dye and any other stuff from them not validated elsewhere.Dave 20:53, 16 September 2007 (UTC)
