I have an evolution midterm in a couple hours. Doing some last minute studying. I had to look up some important scientist involved in evolution....Don't have first names...Does anyone have any clue who Gray is? Who is...last name Asa? I was able to find out about Wallace, Lyell, Lamarck and Dobzansky but I don't know who the other two are...HELP!!! this might come on the exam!

Asa Gray is the Father of American Botany. Curator of the Harvard Herbarium, called "Gray's Herbarium Card Index". He and his colleagues dominated American Botany for over 100 years. Just had a test over it today!

I found the plant section of general biology to be by far the most boring topic I've ever studied. It's great to learn about bryophytes, pteridophytes, gymnosperms, and angiosperms, but after a while it just gets ridiculous. However, I did enjoy the section of fungi.
