SOLD OUT: The Amazing World of Plant Self Defense – Virtual Workshop

February 28, 2023

Run and Hide isn’t a viable defense strategy when your roots are stuck in the ground. So plants have evolved a dizzying array of defense mechanisms to help them ward off predators of all kinds. From physical barriers (thorns) to chemical deterrents, camouflage, and chemical signaling, you’ll learn that applying deer spray to your hydrangeas isn’t the only defense tactic happening in the garden. Morghan McCool, Biology Graduate Student at University of Louisville, will amaze us with a virtual discussion on these adaptations.

We will send the Zoom link a few days before the workshop.
