Plant antics

Abby McBride

For the latest cover of the journal Oikos, I illustrated a paper about kin selection in plants by Bodil K. Ehlers and Trine Bilde.

Tagline: “Imagine you and your cousin are two plants growing in the same pot. In what conditions would it make sense to cooperate rather than compete?”

I’m not sure if anyone noticed that the cover image for this Swedish publication includes a portrayal of the Scandinavian Ox Dance.
