Colloquium: Richardson on the evolution and ecology of long-lived plants

Dr. Richardson (personal website)

The Fall 2023 Biology Colloquium Series continues this Friday with a seminar by Lea Richardson, postdoctoral researcher with the Yoder Lab. Dr. Richardson studies the population health and adaptation of plant species in which individuals live for decades or centuries, having worked with Echinacea, or coneflowers, in Midwestern prairies, and now Joshua trees in southern California deserts. Her seminar will be titled, “At the intersection of ecology, evolution, conservation, and education: learning from long-lived plants”.

Colloquium series seminars are held Fridays at 2pm in Chaparral Hall room 5122.
