    Cynthia Cheney commented on "Description":

    @Tracy Barbaro: "Fruits: Dry, elongated fruits (capsules) 1.25 to 3.75 in (3 to 9 cm) long, which split crosswise from the disk at the base to release the feathery seeds. " But the seeds are not at all feathery; the dry fruits or seedpods spring open, being touched or simply ready, with a twist, shooting tiny hard black seeds everywhere. And there is nothing to justify the "split crosswise from the disk at the base ". How can information about such a common plant be wrong here??

    Harvey Bernstein commented on "Bursera simaruba (L.) Sarg.":

    The distribution info in the entry section is incorrect. The species most certainly isn't found in California or Argentina.

    From the comment in "ECONOMIC USES: "Stinging nettle - hairs can penetrate skin and be fatal." This is wrong. The nettle's hairs cause the sting, a temporary discomfort but in no way a health hazard.

    JohelChaves commented on "Katja Schulz":

    H Katja, a quick question. There is a minor error (comma misplaced in a number) in one of the articles provided by one of my former student about 2 years ago (Scorpiones by Cassandra Owen). I tried to correct the error but that article was uploaded (by me) using edulifedesks, which is no longer used by EOL. So, I no longer have access to this article. How could I (or someone else) fix this issue? Thanks.

Juveniles (3-6 cm) feed mostly on chironomid larvae, cladocerans, ostracods, amphipods, bugs and mayflies (Ref. 1998). Can tolerate high carbon dioxide and low oxygen concentrations and temperatures up to 31.6 °C although experiments show upper lethal temp. to be 37.5 °C; resistant to domestic and industrial pollution (Ref. 1998). Has been observed to bury itself in mud to escape adverse environmental conditions (Ref. 1998). Prepared hot-smoked and also cooked in various ways
