Class: Plant Adaptations
Fri, November 15 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 2:00 pm EDT
Have you ever wondered why plants look the way they do? Every feature of the plant is a result of an adaptation designed to afford reproductive, environmental or cultural success. This class will explore the myriad ways plants have adapted to different habitats, soil types, pollination and dispersal schemes. You will not look at plants the same way again!
