Organic hydric soil bedtime story
The next bedtime story I make up to tell H will totally feature the twin characters of Mucky Peat Histosol and Peaty Muck Histosol, drippy young superheroes. Thank you, Mitsch and Gosselink, authors of my wetlands text.
But no thank you, M&G, for leading me down the fanciful but wrong path of believing that billabongs and oxbows were the same thing. I mean, you said they were, right there in chaper two! Then you took it back later, in, uh, chapter seven or something. I am so disappointed. If you hadn’t given me new characters for stories, I would still be mad.
