The Morton Arboretum hosted the 2017 Center for Tree Science Undergraduate Research Symposium on Wednesday, August 16th. Fellows gave 15 minute presentations on their summer research projects and answered audience questions.
Our keynote speaker was Dr. Richard Primack, Professor of Biology at Boston University, Editor of the journal Biological Conservation, and author of Walden Warming: Climate Change Comes to Thoreau’s Woods, as well as the popular conservation biology textbook Essentials of Conservation Biology. He spoke about detecting the impacts of a warming climate on plants and the role of botanical gardens.
We thank Dr. Primack for a fascinating lecture and congratulate the 2017 Fellows on a successful symposium.
