Conifer Pollination: Sex among Evergreens

Conifer Pollination: Sex among Evergreens

Andrew Leslie, PhD, Assistant Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University

1 Session: Wednesday, May 3, 6:30–8:00pm

Cones scattered on the ground beneath an evergreen; hemlock seedlings sprouting through duff…it is easy to find evidence that conifers reproduce. But how do they do it? Andrew Leslie from Brown University will explain conifer reproduction with a close look at pollen. He will begin in the Weld Hill Lecture Hall and then walk to explore the Arboretum’s conifer collection.
