Gila Native Plant Society meeting


From: Feb 16, 2018 07:00 pm
To: Feb 16, 2018 09:00 pm
 
The February meeting of the Gila Native Plant Society will feature a talk by noted botanist Richard Felger entitled “March to the North: the Last Tropical Orchid”. Orchids, oaks, agaves, yuccas, daturas, cacti and many other plants are hugely diverse towards the tropics but only a few march to the north. Dr. Felger will address these questions: How do the poleward outliers achieve their northern march? How do they differ east and west of the North American continental divide? And how do they compare with their counterparts in the Old World and in the Southern Hemisphere? The meeting is free and open to the public. Meet at Harlan Hall, Room 219, at the corner of 12th and Alabama Streets. Refreshments following the program. For further information contact gilanative@gmail.com.

Invited: Everyone
