S.O.S. – The Power of Seeds, Observations, and Specimens

Predicting the impact of climate change on plants

Tuesday, October 22, 2019
5:00 pm


Wild species are often profoundly affected by climate change, but predicting the long-term consequences remains a major research goal. Dr. Susan J. Mazer will discuss the ways in which herbarium specimens, evolutionary seed banks, and both short- and long-term observations of the seasonal cycles of plants can illuminate the effects of climate change on plants at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.
