Have you noticed all those spooky-looking cobwebs up in the trees? Well, even though they look kind of creepy, they're not actually cobwebs. Commentator John "Richard" Schrock explains all.

Commentator John Richard Schrock is the director of biology education at Emporia State University, where he trains future biology teachers. He's also a regular contributor to Kansas Public Radio.

Production assistance for this commentary was provided by KPR News Intern Courtney Bierman, a sophomore studying journalism at the University of Kansas.
