Formatted Abstract/Summary
...Travelling between Bahía Blanca and Buenos Aires in the spring of 1833 Darwin observed mile upon mile “covered by one mass of these prickly plants”.
He was referring to the cardoon, sometimes called the artichoke thistle. Or to give it its Latin name: Cynara cardunculus.
Thistles were intruders on the pampas...
...Darwin wasn’t the first...

...Navegando entre Bahía Blanca y Buenos Aires en la primavera del año 1833, Darwin observó millas y millas “cubiertas de una masa de estas plantas espinosas”.
Se estaba refiriendo al cardo, a veces llamado el cardo de alcachofa. O para dar su nombre en Latín:
Cynara cardunculus.
Los cardos fueron intrusos en las pampas...
...Darwin no fue el primero.
