Lessons from Plants (Virtual Lecture)
February 23rd, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
- Beronda L. Montgomery, Foundation Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Microbiology & Molecular Genetics, Michigan State University
- In conversation with Brenda Tindal, Executive Director, Harvard Museums of Science & Culture
Plants are essential to humans and the environment: they provide food, absorb carbon dioxide, produce oxygen, serve multiple ecosystem functions, and beautify landscapes. In Lessons from Plants (Harvard University Press, 2021) Beronda Montgomery invites us to appreciate our interdependence with plants and the many lessons that can be gained from a better understanding of the ways in which plants grow, adapt, and thrive. In this conversation with Brenda Tindal, she will address what plants can teach us about relating to one another, building diverse communities and being resilient.
