Gaga Makes History: Plants Named After Lady Gaga

  • Pin it

Although her current line of work is radically different, Lady Gaga may just entered history through the biology door. 19 species of fern were named after her! Kathleen Pryer, Duke University biology professor and study leader reportedly compared Lady Gaga to the various plants and decided they’re definitely alike. Hence names ferns: Gaga Germanotta, Gaga monstraparva and so forth. {psfk}

I like it, indeed. Scientist having a relaxing moments.
This is a good way to make young learn about “GAGA” The plant.

OMG, I have an imagination of these biologists dancing around in their spare time. And why not? :))

ana, have you watched the video? The explanation of the scientist makes a lot of sense to me. I am not a Lady Gaga fan but I like Queen’s Radio Gaga. ;)

I did. I found it awesome. The GAGA gen, amazing.
I do like Gaga. I think she is talented but not much original.
