About the Event

The Conservancy’s own Sarah De Vries will present Plants in a Changing Environment: A Glimpse at Polyploidy in Plants. 

Sarah will discuss how plants are affected by changes in their environment, specifically focussing on "polyploidy" in plants. Polyploidy is when an organism possesses more than two complete sets of chromosomes. In plants, polyploidy provides an avenue for adaptation to changing environments; could this help them survive under climate change? Sarah will give us a sneak peek into what she learned during her Masters research on sources of genetic variation in unreduced gamete production in fireweed. Suggested donation at door: $10
