Wildflower Ecology: A Naturalist's Perspective
Our native woodland wildflowers are more than just a delight for the eye: they have adapted to their environment over millennia and play important roles in the ecology of their region. Join naturalist Carol Gracie and learn the fascinating life histories of spring ephemerals. Topics include adaptations for early blooming, pollination and seed dispersal, and the latest scientific research on the ecology of these beautiful plants. Copies of Carol's book, Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture. This course is part of the Winter Lecture Series.
