If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

Hey bot I got this friggin plant taking over my strawberry fields, what the hell is it? how fo I get rid of it?
Jeez, man whatever you do, don't cut them down at the ground. That will only get rid of them. Locate all tops and cut 3 to 5 inches below on all plants. Watch for a few weeks and then do it again. If you are fortunate, you will say, "Fuck these strawberries!"

^^^^ The Foxglove - I think it is used (or was, there may be a synthetic alternative now) for cardiac therapy, as you say - not some thing I would nibble in the garden. It is really quite surprising how many toxic plants there are - they seem to shunt their excess carbon (secondary metabolites) into a spectrum of physiologically interesting compounds, mainly to deter herbivory, apparently. Bot, is this your area at all?
Not as a subject of study, but I have seen an awful lot of interactions, mostly plant-animal symbiosis in various forms. Cecropia/ant and mequite/ant especially intrigued me. I also like the gut of termites. Everybody has their little dalliances.

Talk about fox in the henhouse, back in the 1970's I spent a 6 weeks in and around Iquitos, Peru collecting bulk specimens of Malpighiaceae, Hippocrateaceae, Rubiaceae, and a couple other families for an NIH study of psychotropic drugs. We even collected a liverwort that the indians smoked. No chemicals of any consequence had at that time ever been described from bryophytes so we thought we had something interesting. We dried a handful and smoked it in a pipe. A mild, cool smoke with absolutely no effect. later we thought that we should have asked what the local indians mixed it with, figuring that the smoldering quality was the vehicle for something more interesting. But we got in trouble with the local military and that's another story.

Yet more evidence of a much more interesting life than mine. Damn. So, why were NIH interested in hallucinogenic plants? Did you guys sit around in lab coats firing crazy powder up each other's noses? And then the military burst in. I'm sure I've seen that film.

Vaguely related - a PD of mine is off to Peru to study hummingbirds this year (climate change malarky) - I get to sit in front of the blasted computer - again.
