Can anyone shed any light on this query? .... John Q. Public phoned
the Smithsonian seeking more information about the use of a
'micro-chip' being used on a species of endangered plant in South
Africa, presumably to track it if someone tried to steal it. I assume
this might take place in a Botanic Garden, where sensors would pick it
up upon exiting. He's interested in how this is applied and what
species is being tracked. Thanks.
