Eleanor Relf replied to ian's discussion Collaborative project anyone?
"Oh. I've just noticed on another post - John Holden says Physarum polycephalum isn't native in the wild in the UK. So I can't just go and find one to be useful to this project. I'd have to obtain one from someone (Ian ;) ) ... Is…"
