Beautiful Monsters

UW Grad Students participate in many different forms of outreach. John Chau, who studies evolutionary relationships among members of the genus Buddleia (Butterfly Bush), writes about "local color" for a popular neighborhood blog the Capitol Hill Seattle Blog. He contributes to the Pikes/Pines series, providing a natural history context for the urban jungle.

Read his recent post on Beautiful Monsters describing the genetic horrorshow that is the cultivated roses.
