How Flowers are Affected by Climate Change

April 17, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join Tanisha Williams, Ph.D student at UConn, as she discusses how flowers and plants can be indicators of climate change. By studying physical floral responses to changes in the environment and examining them alongside modeling predictions and population genetics, we can better understand the “past, present, and future” of the mechanisms driving plant populations and changes for survival in an ever shifting climate.

Tanisha is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology studying how indigenous flora from South Africa respond to climate change. She is a Fulbright Scholar and has spent the past year in South Africa conducting research.
