New fern species named after Lady Gaga
Gaga germanotta and Gaga monstraparva. Those are just a few of the fern species scientists at Duke University have named after pop singer Lady Gaga.
Scientists chose Lady Gaga because of her defense of equality and individual expression, which is similar to the ferns that can grow into plants as male, female or bisexual.
