Plant ecologist Tim Spira will present a program “Beyond Identification: The Ecology of Wildflowers,” Thursday, June 26, at 7 p.m. in the Meeting Room of the Macon County Public Library.
Spira will expound on the many interesting ways that plants adapt to their environments and how to interpret common features of native plants.
He will answer such questions as, why flowers are so variable in size, color, shape, and fragrance or why fruits change color as they age, and why some fruits are sweet and others are not? And, why leaves differ in size, shape, and color?
The answers to questions such as these adds a new dimension to understanding and appreciating wildflowers.
