Plant Migration, Glacial Epochs and a Changing Climate
Thursday, May 1, 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Public $15; Members $10
With the advance and retreat of glaciers, plants have migrated thousands of kilometres back and forth over this vast continent. Using palynology to study spores and pollen, modern science has been able to map these migrations. Setting the stage for a fascinating discussion, Darrell Bley of Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens and School of Horticulture will review the advance and retreat of plants around the Great Lakes Basin during the last glacial period, as they pertain to the plant species growing in southern Ontario today and the impacts of climate change.
