The Images in the Banner


Congratulations! You are one of the few to figure out that the set of three images in the banner is a link to another page, this one.

You also probably noted that there are different images in the banners of the various pages on the Plasmodiophorid Home Page. A JavaScript randomly selects one of 14 sets of images each time one of the pages is loaded. The following is information about the sets of images used in the banner.



Galls on Halodule wrightii, Chinese cabbage, and Veronica sp.
