Let's Botanize!

In their Instagram series, Let’s Botanize, Harvard doctoral candidates Ben Goulet-Scott and Jacob Suissa share their passion for plants plus bring these often-overlooked parts of our environment into the foreground. Join the Harvard Museum of Natural History along with the Harvard Museums of Science & Culture on Wednesday, April 21 for a live screening of their short video, "Movement without Muscles: The Sensitive Fern." The sensitive fern, Onoclea sensibilis, is a native New England plant with an unusual method of spore dispersal. Hear about Jacob’s research into the anatomical mechanisms that make this dispersal possible plus develop an appreciation of plants. Audience Q&A with Jacob and Ben will follow. Advanced registration is required.
