Chris, I'm not a 'proper biologist' but it's pretty obvious that it's a perfectly normal term in botany as well as in zoology, which is probably the usage you were aware of.

Bright blue skies, but cooler than of late - 12.5C when I got up - we'll see what the day brings ...
BL - how awful! Glad you got home safely - fingers crossed for the next attempt!
LillyP - sounds like a rewarding day

I'm sure I'll find them useful for something Rich
Thank you GG, and thank you Woody too

Nowadays you can buy 'sleepers' which have never been near a railway and haven't been impregnated with creosote/tar etc like the old-style railway sleepers - you can buy them pressure treated or not.
Maybe that's what the OP is talking about.
