Wendy Zomlefer and Linda Chafin

PBio Herbarium Curator Wendy Zomlefer and Linda Chafin (Conservation Botanist at the State Botanical Garden) recently presented the Regional Botany Special Lecture for the Botanical Society of America conference in Savannah: "Ancient Mountains to Recent Shorelines: Adventures in the Flora of Georgia." The two botanists provided an introduction to the floristics of the state by summarizing some of their favorite habitats and describing some of their favorite native plants. 

Linda also discussed successful efforts of the conservation community to preserve the biodiversity of Georgia.  Since the talk was very well attended, conference organizers are requesting future presenters of this invited lecture to follow a similar format.
