Wall charts were used in classrooms to teach science in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Here are some particularly lovely European examples reproduced in 𝑨𝒓𝒕 𝒐𝒇 𝑰𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒓𝒖𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏 (San Francisco, 2011). #library #books #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #librarybooks #librarybook #plants #scientificillustration (at Harvard Yard) https://www.instagram.com/p/CjQhnwIu2uF/?igshid=NGJjMDIxMWI=

Fun Updates!!!
Hello my friends! As we know there has been a new update to our favorite hellsite, YAY! *insert jazzhands* and wonderfully enough I can no longer update/ edit/ link my stories.
So, idk what to do
Tumblr media
I will keep my tag list (tho I am pretty sure that is not reaching 90% of those on there), not adding to it, but I guess all I can do is ask that you follow my library and possibly my Ao3 if you haven't already (no pressure)
It's honestly getting so discouraging lol
This is my Masterlist 2.0 which has links to everything. For the time being Ao3 and the library will be the only way to see new stories from here on out. (Am I repeating myself? Sorry)

James Patterson books are an invasive species humans brought into library shelf environments because we wanted fast-reproducing, easily-digestible food. But at the time, we didn't know as much about their natural airport environment, which has very few available nutrients. This environment greatly favours the genericalist species like Patterson, so there's very little bibliodiversity compared to the more specialized library or bookstore environment. This means that each species in an airport has an enormously expanded niche compared to just about anywhere else books can thrive - in their natural habitat, Patterson books may be one of only 3 or 4 species competing for available nutrients. In these low-density, low-nutrient environments, Patterson books occupy vast swathes of territory without bothering other species. This history makes it extremely easy for them to outcompete the more specialized inhabitants of the library shelf, who have often been carefully selected to fill ultraspecific subgenre niches.
Left unweeded, Patterson books will expand their territory over multiple book bays, crowding out or even straight-up eliminating space for competitors and sending contributor-author runners out to other shelves. Contained to a single, planned set of shelves and kept strictly pruned, Patterson books can contribute to a healthy ecosystem. But many curators don't know or don't care to do the planning and maintenance, leading to the nightmare of overcrowding and loss of circulation.
