Climate Change and Assisted Migration: Ultimate Solution or Bad Idea?

October 25, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free

The climate is warming, and some plant species may not be able to survive under future conditions. Should we move plant species to cooler climates to avoid their demise? If so, which species? What are the potential consequences? Are there other options? This lecture is part of our annual Certificate Awards ceremony. At the conclusion of the lecture, certificates will be awarded to new graduates of our certificate programs in Native Plant Studies. Refreshments will follow.
