Everything is Leaf

When: Sat., March 25, 10 a.m. 2017

Bruce Palmer presents how flowering plants became and remain the dominant plants on land. The talk will begin with some geological history, move on to the anatomy of typical leaves, then to the adaptations of leaves to different environmental conditions, including adaptations of many rhododendron leaves. The talk will end with a discussion of why Goethe thought all plant parts derive from leaves and why he may have been correct so long ago.
