A Botanist in a Botanic Garden: Field and Laboratory Adventures (March 24, 2pm)
Dr. Susan Pell, Director of Science, Brooklyn Botanic Garden

People often marvel at the idea of scientists working at public gardens and arboreta. Why are they there? What are they doing? Come on a botanical journey around the globe and through the lab as I show you some of the research I have conducted at two gardens in New York City. As a laboratory manager at The New York Botanical Garden and Director of Science at Brooklyn Botanic Garden, I have had numerous opportunities to participate in international field expeditions and to conduct molecular research on a diversity of topics from cashews to lilacs. In this lecture, I will share some stories from my adventures and talk about the role of botany in public gardens.
