Friends of the Arboretum Lecture

"A Plantsman in China"
Todd Lasseigne, Collections Manager

  • Thursday, March 23, 2000 – 7:30 pm9:00 pm

China offers an opportunity for unparalleled study of temperate-zone botanical diversity. Boasting nearly 30,000 species of vascular plants (150% that of US and Canada, combined), no other temperate zone flora remains as complete as that of China, which escaped the widespread plant extinctions in North America and Europe during the Pleistocene glaciations. In this talk, vignettes will be presented of the botanical diversity, emerging horticulture industry, and rich cultures observed on the recent Sigma Xi trip to Yunnan Province, China.

Free for Friends of the JC Raulston Arboretum members, NC State University students (with ID), and Department of Horticultural Science faculty and staff, all others $5.00.
