Lecture: A Beginner's Guide to Plant Taxonomy
Orlando de Lange, SoundBio Lab and Ada's present - A Rose by Any Other Name: A Beginner's Guide to Plant Taxonomy
Want to know your monocots from your dicots, your asterids from your leguminosae? Or perhaps you just want to know what actually makes a plant a plant. Spoiler: If you think plants are green things that grow in soil and get their energy from the sun then think again.
Speaker: Orlando de Lange, Plant Molecular Biologist at UW and parent to many happy houseplants.
Arriving in Seattle from the UK, by way of Germany, presenter Orlando de Lange now spends his days researching plant immune systems at the University of Washington. By night, weekend, and any other free time he can be found at SoundBio, a community lab space in the University District where he leads a team of intrepid amateur plant scientists (www.sound.bio).
