Ancient Magnolid

Spring 2012 - Volume 16 Number 2

"Ancient Magnolid" a photograph by Latifat Apatira, MD, was taken in San Francisco, CA. Magnolias are primeval, having evolved before bees; their flowers are tough and waxy to withstand the damage caused by their pollinators: beetles. The appearance of these brilliant flowers on naked trees welcomes spring to the city of San Francisco.     Dr Apatira is a second-year Resident in Internal Medicine and Preventive Medicine at the Kaiser Permanente San Francisco Medical Center. Her research interest includes examining the human health impacts of large-scale anthropogenic environmental change. In her spare time, she enjoys roaming the San Francisco Botanical Garden with her camera. This photograph is taken with a simple "point-and-shoot" Sony DSC-W90.
