From today's featured article

Banksia serrata (Opens in a new window), the old man banksia, is a species of woody shrub (Opens in a new window) or tree in the family Proteaceae (Opens in a new window). It is found from Queensland (Opens in a new window) to Victoria (Opens in a new window), commonly growing as a gnarled tree up to 16 m (50 ft) in height, though it can be much smaller in more exposed areas. It has wrinkled grey bark and shiny dark green serrated leaves. The large yellow or greyish-yellow flower spikes (Opens in a new window) turn grey as they age, and pollinated flowers develop into large, grey, woody seed pods (Opens in a new window). This Banksia (Opens in a new window) species is one of four collected by Joseph Banks (Opens in a new window) in 1770, and one of four published in 1782 as part of Carl Linnaeus the Younger (Opens in a new window)'s original description of the genus. Throughout its range, it grows exclusively in sandy soils, and is usually the dominant plant where it grows in scrubland (Opens in a new window) or low woodland (Opens in a new window). B. serrata is pollinated (Opens in a new window) by and provides food for a wide array of vertebrate (Opens in a new window) and invertebrate (Opens in a new window) animals in the autumn and winter months. It is a common plant of parks and gardens. (Full article... (Opens in a new window))
