THE VOYAGER LECTURE SERIES–EVENINGS TO INSPIRE CURIOSITY & WONDER
At 7:30 pm on May 25th, the Voyager Lecture Series continues with Jerry Harris showing us how plants became the life support and beauty of the modern world.
Plants had to figure out how to obtain resources from soil and air. There were no vessels that could carry water throughout the plant… so eventually, they developed vascular tissue to transport water/sugar within the plant. Plants had to figure out how to support their body up in the air because algae had no such structures. This gave way to the specialization of the root system and the shoot system.
Cost is $10 – $15
