Meet The “Apparating” Plant(Scroll Down for Video of Dr. Struwe)
Dr. Lena Struwe of Rutgers University Discovered and Named “The Apparating Plant”
Even if you’ve never read a book or watched a movie (gasp!) in the Harry Potter series, you certainly know who Harry Potter is. The story of the boy wizard and his loyal friends have attracted a loyal following of fans from around the world. In fact, J.K. Rowling’s multi-award winning series of books is so pervasive… it’s even entered the world of flowers.
At the science of plant taxonomy at Rutgers’ Cook College in New Jersey, an assistant professor shared in the discovery of a rare, new jungle plant located in Ecuador. Lena Struwe also happens to be a huge Harry Potter fan.
Much of the original forest in Ecuador has disappeared. Mostly because trees have been cut for lumber or burned to clear for pastureland. Just in Ecuador alone, it’s estimated that 83% of all plant species are near extinction. A much higher level than first thought.
The name of the new plant species is “apparata” which is taken from the term “to apparate” (as in apparition). The term “apparate” is used often throughout the Harry Potter books. It refers to a wizard’s ability to disappear and then reappear elsewhere instantaneously.
The Macrocarpaea Apparata flower is a tall plant with yellowish-white, bell-shaped flowers.
Lena Struwe, being a key figure in the discovery of the new plant and Harry Potter fan, helped to choose the name. Its connection to the world of Harry Potter was deliberate.
This new species of flower is called Macrocarpaea Apparata. Scientists have worked feverishly to save the disappearing vegetation from many of the worlds largest jungles and rain forests. Ecuador is an area that’s been deteriorating dramatically.
The Macrocarpaea Apparata flower was so named because it was discovered by appearing out of nowhere. Hundreds of man hours went into this rare find and new species of plant.
