What Plants Grow Here?

Linda Hardison, Assistant Professor, Senior Researcher; Director, Oregon Flora Project

What influences where plants occur? How do we know, and why does it matter? Come explore our state's botanical life with the director of the Oregon Flora Project. Oregon Flora is a comprehensive account of the plants of an area, including unknown plants. It houses information about the vascular plants of Oregon that grow without cultivation and allows users to explore them via an atlas, a checklist, a flora (a manual of scientific names) and a photo gallery. Information within Oregon Flora is available to scientists and generalists alike. 

We have reached capacity for this event. Registration is closed.
