A brief interlude from the “Plant Biodiversity of China” series (and only a brief entry)
, since I’m presently concentrating on trying to repair the weblog software after an “upgrade” yesterday morning. I think I have the notification system working (we’ll see with this entry, and sorry about the new entry notification yesterday due to a spam comment(!)), but I still have to fix the commenting system — so, no comments on today’s entry or previous entries until that is repaired.
For those of you who have received duplicate notices about today’s entry, I apologize. I had to give up on an attempt to “upgrade” the software that runs Botany Photo of the Day because it broke more things than it fixed. So, after publishing today’s entry with the upgraded system (and seeing how much it broke), I decided to revert to the old system, with a database backup from Monday at 2am local time (no comments were lost, though, since there hadn’t been any). So, while I sort out what to do next, we’ll stay on this version of the software for the time being.
Wyethia helianthoides is known as white mule’s-ears or white-rayed wyethia, and is native to the northern Great Basin region of the USA. Additional photographs are available from CalPhotos: Wyethia helianthoides and the Malheur Experiment Station: Wyethia helianthoides.
