Lantana camara
Flowers of the plant Lantana camara with a crab spider waiting in ambush for prey. Part of the family Verbenaceae, L. camara is native to South and Central America and is now found across the world. It is often planted indoors or in a conservatory but can also be used in a garden if it has sufficient shelter. In some areas it has become an invasive species, affecting agricultural areas as a result of its toxicity to livestock and an ability to form dense thickets.Photograph: Joaquim Alves Gaspar
Tip of the day...
Spreading the WikiLove
Wikilove2.png

WikiLove is a term that refers to a general spirit of collegiality and mutual understanding among wiki users. It was coined over time on the mailing lists.

If we keep this common goal, this love of knowledge, in mind, if we concentrate on achieving a neutral point of view even when it is difficult, and if we try to actually understand what the other side has to say, then we can reach the state of "WikiLove".

To enable an easy widget for placing WikiLove on Talk pages, go to the editing tab of your Preferences, check off the box for Enable showing appreciation for other users with the WikiLove tab, scroll to the bottom of the preferences page, and save your change. Or you can manually use the templates linked below. Happy editing, and spread WikiLove!
