On the Politics and Social Lives of Morning Glories
This chapter revisits the author's doctoral work on the maintenance of flower color variation in morning glories to explore how a feminist analysis can help explain the shape and scope of this research. It traces the idea of variation and the shifting understanding of its significance in the field of evolutionary biology and moreover posits that an interdisciplinary education would have fundamentally reshaped the author's work on the evolutionary biology of morning glory flower color variation. Thus, inspired by the touch-sensitive thigmatropic tendrils of morning glories, which allow the plants to scale large objects and burrow into narrow crevices, this chapter narrates tales of the morning glories through the curious and adventurous tendrils of naturecultural storytelling.
