New Tasselweed video

Lliam Rooney's latest video is now available and it is possibly the *Citizen Kane of films about aquatics. Yes, Ruppia: the Movie is now out so grab some popcorn, switch your phone off and click here-->

Lliam says "I hope you enjoy it! It took a lot of doing to make it, but I am very happy with it... now it's finished!" 

And don't worry, the Horsetail videos haven't gone away, I've just moved the links up the page a bit - glance up above the date and you'll see the titles. I thought the Ruppia video could hog the limelight for a while. 

*This may mean that Claudia Ferguson-Smyth is the Eisenstein of aquatics. Battleship Potamogeton? Follow the link above to watch Claudia's P. epihydrus video.

  1. This is excellent. Ito et al. on Ruppia phylogeny (Am J Bot 2010, full paper available here: put R. cirrhosa slap in the middle of a R. maritima clade. However, the only R. cirrhosa sample used is from the sole Skye site where it is said to grow with R. maritima in a typical R. maritima site rather than a typical R. cirrhosa site. I keep meaing to go an see what I think of this myself - but it will have to wait until August now.....
