Write a Post

You can be a contributor!  I love commentors and contributors and feedbackers!

HOW?

Write your first post as a comment in the comments below. And if it’s readable, you can be an author on this blog and have control over your posts – to edit, to delete, to add images, links, videos etc

Once you are an author, you can write posts any time you like. Your Author Posts will appear in the sidebar under your name.

A lot of my posts are COPY and PASTE from other websites.  Your posts can be also.

If you have found an interesting post or ARTICLE from a website and you would like to copy it and put into your post, there is a FORMAT in THREE SECTIONS as below.

1  Introduction: In your own words, write an introduction (in italics) to what you are copy and pasting. If you do not want to post the whole post or article, you can post an  EXTRACT, and mention it in the introduction.

2  SOURCE:    copy and paste the link of your source.

3  copy and paste the post or article – do NOT change anything


Example of How to Post other author’s writings

I found this interesting article, and thought you might like a good read and I post an EXTRACT below.

Mycorrhizas are associations between fungi and plant roots that can be beneficial to both the plant and the fungi. The fungi link the plant with soil by acting as agents of nutrient exchange. The fungi receive carbohydrates as energy from the host plant root whilst nutrients such as phosphorus and zinc are passed back into the plant roots from the soil. Mycorrhizal associations may also reduce attack from root pathogens and increase the tolerance of the plant to adverse conditions such as heavy metals, drought, and salinity. In general, mycorrhizas play an important role in sustainable plant productivity and maintenance of soil structure.

Mycorrhizal associations occur on almost all terrestrial plants and are not as plant-specific as other plant-microbe associations that formed between some plants (e.g. legumes) and bacteria (e.g. rhizobia).

“Some plant species, such as crucifers (i.e. broccoli) are unusual in that mycorrhizal symbioses are absent. Species with fine root hairs and many root hairs are not as dependent on mycorrhizae as species with well-defined tap roots” (Coyne, 1999).
