Our native woodland wildflowers are more than just a delight for the eye: they have adapted to their environment over millennia and play important roles in the ecology of their region. Join naturalist Carol Gracie and learn the fascinating life histories of spring ephemerals. Topics include adaptations for early blooming, pollination and seed dispersal, and the latest scientific research on the ecology of these beautiful plants.

Copies of Carol's book, Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History, will be available for purchase and signing after the lecture.

Carol Gracie is retired from The New York Botanical Garden, where she worked in the Science Division. She has since returned to her earlier interest in local flora and has co-authored, with Steven Clemants, Wildflowers in the Field and Forest: A Field Guide to the Northeastern United States. Her latest book, Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast: A Natural History, was published by Princeton University Press in 2012. Carol is currently working on a book on the natural history of summer wildflowers.

This lecture is eligible for 1 PCH CEU
