Bananas on TV and the blogosphere

In Africa, political parties must stop using real banana leaves as their symbol at rallies or on buses…

Why? Pat Heslop-Harrison explains the reason, and much more, in a great new post at AoB Blog. The occasion is the 13 May edition of the BBC TV programme The One Show, which included an interview with Dr Heslop-Harrison by journalist, food critic and TV personality Jay Rayner. With links to a couple of freely available Annals of Botany papers and a presentation too.

LATER: Let’s not forget the importance of banana for brewing beer in parts of Africa.
