All summer long the little professor collected leaves (latin: folium).
He looked for new species, which he analysed, named, compared and dried.
He discovered beech, maple, larch, clover, forget-me-nots, and nettle.
He became an expert in botany, specialising in dendrology.
The effect of his study were three volumes of herbarium.
The autumn was equally benevolent.
The professor has discovered that autumn leaves:
- change colour
- change their location
He has evidence to prove that. But this as not the end of the study.
The leaves will undergo further observation, the next stage is planned for April 2015.
The results will be published in May 2015.
At Leoblog, of course.
