The last four grammar questions of the day [I think]-
idenify the word that the phrase in CAPS modifies:
1.A scientist WHO FINDS ONE NEW SPECIES is very happy
2.WHEN SOMEONE FINDS SEVERAL NEW SPECIES AT ONCE, that is rare indeed
3.Only a few plants, WHICH MEET STRICT REQUIREMENTS, will go under an electron microscope.
Ans- I'm not sure about this one:: plants?
4.New Jersey then was as warm AS TROPICAL BRAZIL IS TODAY.
Ans- not sure about this one either:: New Jersey?

The first three are correct. :-) The clause in number 4 is an adverb clause modifying the adjective, "warm."

I am not so sure about #2. I would choose "that"

Hmmm, you're right. That could be it!

I think you're right, Drwls. Although "when" doesn't usually introduce adjective clauses, this may be an exception.
