Just when you think the simplest, natural things cannot be compromised by analytical classification, something like this comes along. Who knew that somebody had named all the strawberry morphologies? Well, I bet Prof. Kirk Larson did, since it appears there's nothing about strawberries he doesn't know. He did academic work in Pomology. Until I, the philosopher, had taken a moment to contemplate the strawberry, I'd never heard of that discipline. (It's the science that deals with fruits and fruit growing.) Still -- the strawberry seems to have been carefully studied; indeed, everything I could ever imagine about strawberries seems to be available at Michigan State's Strawberry Information Center . I recently contemplated the ant, but the strawberry has surprised me a bit more than I expected. So now I'm thinking there must be morphologies for all fruit. And for leaves too.
