SELDOM IS THE launch of a new Web feature greeted with such enthusiasm as will doubtless greet the appearance of Flora Pittsburghensis, the latest addition to Dr. Boli’s publishing empire. Other publications may deal with the flora of the Pittsburgh area, but none do so with the exclusive photographs featured in Flora Pittsburghensis. The few photographs featured there now are but a sample of the innumerable illustrations that will appear over the next few years, or decades, or centuries (for Dr. Boli is used to thinking in the long term). Visit the new Flora Pittsburghensis and have a look for yourself. As with all his publications, Dr. Boli offers Flora Pittsburghensis with his exclusive money-back guarantee: if you are not completely satisfied, Dr. Boli will take his money back.

Yet I shudder to imagine the disastrous consequences had the mistaken identification gone the other way. Legions of suburban children in the woods, chopping away with sticks, playing happily among the “Japanese Knotweed” plants…
