Join USDA Researcher Samuel Ramsey to ask: Is there such a thing as "diversity for diversity's sake" or is diversity indispensable? The answer to that question is the same whether you're discussing biology or biologists.

Plant Evolution Through Geological Time

Date/Time:

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Wednesday, August 4, 2021

Description:

Take a 2 billion year journey of plants through the fossil record starting with cyanobacteria and algae to the movement of plants out of the sea onto land where the development of woody structures let them move inland and start the greening of the earth. We will look at changes in reproductive methods from spore release to seeded plants such as ginkgoes and conifers to flowering plants which colored the globe ending with the emergence of grasses that feed both long legged grazers and humans. Presented by NHSMs intellectual treasure, Tom Piscitelli. Welcome to hybrid programming which will allow those who are willing and able to meet in person to do so, but also allow others who would rather learn from home, to do so as well.
