ENTWINED: Plants, Exploration, and Our Future
Friday, March 3, 10 a.m.; Ross Hall, NYBG
Exploration has been at the core of the Garden’s mission since its founding—and is more urgent now than ever in the face of global environmental change. The crucial work NYBG scientists undertake at all scales and in all places—from discovering drought-resistant genes in the lab to documenting vanishing traditional medicinal plant knowledge—empowers us to understand plants in whole new ways.
This symposium features presentations by NYBG scientists and focuses on the vital role exploration plays in understanding the entwined relationships of plants to the well-being of humans and ecosystems, and the challenges for sustaining those relationships over time.
