Popularity of Asclepias asperula over time
[Plots of numbers of papers mentioning Asclepias asperula (filled column histogram and left hand axis scale) and line of best fit, 1926 to 2006 (complete line, with equation and % variation accounted for, in box on the left hand side); Plots of a proportional micro index, derived from numbers of papers mentioning Asclepias asperula as a proportion (scaled by multiplying by one million) of the total number of papers published for that year (broken line frequency polygon and right hand scale) and line of best fit, 1926 to 2006 (broken line, with equation and % variation accounted for, in broken line box on the right hand side)]
