A colleague recently told me that four out five animals are nematodes. I strive to be the exception. I like birds, fungi, grasses, and experimental music. I try very hard to pronounce Latin names correctly and am fascinated by their etymology. I have a special affection for ligustrum (Latin for "binder"), nandina (Japanese for "Southern sky"), King Ranch bluestem, and brown-headed cowbirds. Most people hate them--but then again, four out of five of them are nematodes.
