“A Floral Journey – Discovering the Magic of Flowers” will discuss how flowering plants are the backbone of horticulture, to all of agriculture, and how the flowers they produce are integral to our society. Flowers occur in an almost infinite range of colors, sizes, shapes, fragrances and more. How did they get that way and what do the variations mean? During the lecture, we will explore the importance of flowers in our society, the evolutionary history of flowers and the pollination strategies that have shaped flowers.

Join us after the lecture for a brief reception in the atrium of the Cargill Building.
