Figure 12

Gurania bignoniacea prefers to grow in soggy ravines, thriving even with its roots growing in the mud under flowing streams. This species is the only one of the five at Los Amigos that has compound (trifoliolate) leaves. Both the leaves and stems are slightly hairy, and the inflorescences and flowers are tiny compared to the other species at the station.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
