Climate Change, Conservation, and the Role of Native Plant Horticulture

Jesse Bellemare, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences, Smith College
As our climate changes rapidly, the distributions of many native plant species must shift to keep pace. This poses a dilemma— what role should we take in helping native plant populations migrate? Jesse Bellemare will explore the ecological complexities of this question, including the important insights we can gain from native plant horticulture.
