The Biology of the Strawberry

Strawberries have a biology, too, one most of us don't consider.
Where I grew up, they were not too far from the back door: cultivated and wild. I have always found then lovely plants to look at even when not bearing fruit.

In the Readers' Wildlife Photos section of Why Evolution is True, frequent contributor Athayde Tonhasca JĂșnior leads a lesson on strawberries titled Red Treasures.

WEIT host Jerry Coyne adds a note at the end about a famous jam. It is his favorite.

Thanks to University of Chicago Emeritus Professor Jerry Coyne for this website and to photojounalist Athayde Tonhasca Junior for the work he puts into these entries.
