Breaking Boundaries of Biodiversity

April 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Speaker: Sula Vanderplank

Synopsis: Have you ever wondered how far south the plants of our region extend into Baja California? Ever thought about how many of our rare plants are found across the Baja California border? This talk will elucidate some of the patterns at the southern end of the California Floristic Province, and will highlight special local habitats like our Maritime Succulent Scrub, which boasts an amazing number of rare plants (and animals!)

She is adjunct faculty at the Center for Scientific Research and Higher Learning of Ensenada (CICESE) in Baja California, Mexico and at San Diego State University in California (USA) and she has published more than 20 peer-reviewed papers on the biodiversity of the region.
