Climate change poses many challenges to plants that are adapted to particular environmental conditions. Conservation biologists ask: How best can we protect plant diversity in light of these challenges? Should we actively move plants or genes, protect land that enables plants to migrate on their own, or take other steps? Engage in a moderated, lively discussion based on provided readings and your own opinions.
Instructor: Dr. Elizabeth Farnsworth; senior research ecologist, New England Wild Flower Society
