Saving Plants, Saving Ourselves says
Free Fuqua Lecture

Careful estimates indicate that our planet is entering the sixth great extinction in history and that half of all biological species could be lost by the end of this century. For plants, the situation is particularly urgent, but there are conservation tactics that could help save a great majority of them. Join Dr. Peter Raven to explore special methods for plant conservation and how the role of institutions like botanical gardens is essential. Peter H. Raven, a leading botanist and advocate of conservation and biodiversity, is president emeritus of the Missouri Botanical Garden and George Engelmann Professor of Botany Emeritus at Washington University in St. Louis. In addition, Dr. Raven is a Trustee of the National Geographic Society and Chairman of the Society’s Committee for Research and Exploration. He also serves as Chairman of the Board for the Center for Plant Conservation, a national organization.
