Botany Blast: Seasonal Shifts in Trees

Date: 

Monday, April 15, 2019, 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Location: 

Hunnewell Building, Arnold Arboretum, Boston

There are challenges to being a tree in a temperate climate, mainly the changing of seasons. But trees are equipped to shift with these environmental changes. Kristel Schoonderwoerd, PhD Candidate for Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at Harvard University, and Fellow of the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, will explain how trees slow down for winter and subsequently reverse “gears” for springtime and the onset of the growing season.
