Chris Martine, David Burpee Professor in Plant Genetics & Research, Biology Associate Department Chair, Bucknell University, host of Plants are Cool Too, on #Plantsgiving. We’ll do our annual talk on the plants which contribute to your Thanksgiving meal, how an all plant meal wouldn’t bee that bad…and how popular is Plantsgiving now.   We’ll ask how has this conversation spread, has social media changed botany, and if we were to rely less on meat, how will plants rise up as substitute (so to speak)? We’ll talk about our footprint, our ‘plantprint’ on the world…how plants impact us, what’s coming up on ‘Plants are Cool Too? And why all of the Martines so cool?
