  1. I never asked, but I was expecting the two of you to be friends. Would be too much of a coincidence for 2 such specialist to join at the same time :)

    Needless to say, we're very happy with it. The both of you bring coverage of plants, ecosystems and locations that were lacking quite a lot, so you're pioneering entirely new categories here!
