This past week I was out at Newport Rhode Island for a bit and came across this enormous European Copper Beech tree. I think a wide angle lens was necessary to capture the girth of the foliage. As you can see from the photographs, there was no grass underneath and the temperature was much cooler in the shade of this tree. The gnarly roots grew like giant yams in the dirt.

I spoke with another scientist yesterday and today I'm integrating those quotes into a sidebar in chapter 1. For the most part, the only thing left to do is write up the one remaining sidebar. I did hear from my ChemMatters editor recently so I expect to find that edited article dropped on my doorstep some time soon.
