Plants Go to War: A Botanical History of World War II

October 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us at the Hunnewell Building at the Arnold Arboretum for a talk by Judith Sumner, PhD,  botanist, and author of Plants Go to War - the first botanical history of World War II.

As the first botanical history of World War II, Plants Go to War examines military history from the perspective of plant science. From victory gardens to drugs, timber, rubber, and fibers, plants supplied materials with key roles in victory. Author and botanist Judith Sumner will speak of the many plants that were incorporated into wartime safety materials, diet and rations, and even bombers.
