Join us for a talk and question-and-answer on baobab trees with David Baum, professor of botany at UW-Madison. This talk, titled Monstrous productions of the vegetable kingdom: Ecology and evolution of baobabs in Africa, Madagascar, and Australia, is built upon more that 30 years of research, including many months of research in the tropics, will introduce all 8 species of baobab, describe what is known about their ecology (with a special focus on their remarkable pollination ecology), and summarize current understanding of their evolutionary history and conservation status. Meet at the McMiller Ski Trails Center.
