OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Looking for a citizen science project? The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is looking for people to help collect data on ginkgos leaves. "Ginkgo trees evolved before the dinosaurs, survived three mass extinctions, and one species is still living today. We are researching how the cells of leaves on ginkgo trees have changed over time and how we can use this knowledge to learn about the ancient atmosphere of the Earth." For more on the project and how to participate, see www.si.edu/fossil-atmospheres
