NPAT – Transforming Taxonomy – Meditations on Morphology

April 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Native Prairies Association of Texas – Houston Chapter   AT: NPAT

Meditations on Morphology by Andy Newman

When we look at a forest, a prairie, a savannah, a bog, it is so easy to see a wall of blurred greens, yellows, reds, and browns. But if we slow down and look closer- can we save space to ponder why plants develop certain morphological features? We can ask: Why is that flower curved upward, why do leaves smell minty, why do some trees have flaky bark, etc.? This talk will explore how we can revivify botanical inquiry and how mindfulness and contemplation help us further understand our fellow green denizens of terra firma.
