Evolution Matters Lecture Series: The Revolution in Plant Evolution

Evolution Matters Lecture Series: The Revolution in Plant Evolution

Free Harvard Museum of Natural History lecture by University of Florida Professor Pamela Soltis on plant evolution.

Thursday, March 5, 2015 - 6:00pm

Today’s digital technologies enable museums to “unlock” their cabinets and share their treasures online. Pamela Soltis, Distinguished Professor and Curator, Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida, will discuss how access to digital data and images of natural history collections is becoming a game changer in the understanding of plant evolution. From enabling novel research on plant genetics, to highlighting the roles plants play in nature and how they respond to climate change, museum collections are a key resource, particularly when studying plants that are rare, hard to collect, endangered, or extinct.

Supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit

Presented by Harvard Museum of Natural History, Harvard Museums of Science & Culture
