I think this group will find this article in Science interesting/useful:

Hemingway, C., W. Dahl, C. Haufler, and C. Stuessy. 2011. Building  
Botanical Literacy. Science 331 (6024):1535-1536.

Plant biology can be made interesting and engaging, but it does  
require special efforts.  Some good ideas are aired here, but others  
having to do with topics (long story) are not.

A plug:  Support Science/AAAS   They have a very important role to  
play in the current US antiscience/anti-intellectual atmosphere.
