Chris Martine, David Burpee Professor in Plant Genetics & Research, Biology Associate Department Chair, Bucknell University, host of Plants are Cool Too, will be joined by Anais Barnes, Biology student, Bucknell University, on the latest search for rare plants locally, their work and research locally, the recognition recently in the Philadelphia Inquirer, #BlackBotanistsWeek 2021 (this week), and her words at the Botany 2021 Conference. Chris will also be joined by Tanisha M. Williams, PhD, Burpee Postdoctoral Fellow in Botany, Biology Department, Bucknell University, founder #BlackBotanistWeek, on her latest work, research, findings and studies. The world is another? degrees warmer since we last spoke so we’ll find out about more impacts locally and globally.
