Shipment packaging: Bare-root plants are carefully wrapped in different varieties of live sphagnum. The roots are then wrapped with a thick paper towel. Then the whole plant is then wrapped in a thick paper towel then lightly sprayed with a systemic anti-fungicide (this preserves the plant perfectly). Each plant is then wrapped in a small ziplock bag. They are placed in a small shipping box with packaging paper or bubble wrap. The box is then put into a padded envelope for extra protection. Each shipping label has the words *LIVE PLANTS* HANDLE WITH CARE.
Affinity (aff.) (taxonomy)
Affinity (taxonomy) – mainly in life sciences or natural history – refers to resemblance suggesting a common descent, phylogenetic relationship, or type. The term does, however, have broader application, such as in geology (for example, in descriptive and theoretical works), and similarly in astronomy (for example, see "Centaur object" in the context of 2060 Chiron's close affinity with icy comet nuclei.)
In taxonomy the basis of any particular type of classification is the way in which objects in the domain resemble each other. A resemblance of a type that seems appropriate to the classification that we propose, we may call an affinity, and when we decide how to classify say, a specimen of rock or butterfly, we justify our decision according to the affinities that we observe.
Other resemblances we dismiss as being out of context or at least non-cogent; for example, in deciding whether to classify a lizard as having closer affinities to a snake than to a table, biologists rely on affinities such as the scales, blood, physiology, vertebral anatomy, and reproductive system as being more relevant than the possession of four "feet".
