BIBLE HILL - Alpine plants of the Austrian alps will be the subject of an open lecture here tomorrow at the Dalhousie Agricultural campus (formerly Nova Scotia Agricultural College).
The guest speaker is Nick Turland, an associate curator in the Division of Science and Conservation at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri.
Turland joined the staff there in 1997 to work on the Flora of China Project, moving from his native England where he had worked since 1993 in the Botany Department of the Natural History Museum, London.
Nick is now co-director of the Flora of China Project, which is co-ordinated from St. Louis and involves 11 partner institutions in China, the United States, the United Kingdom and France. This 50-volume flora is now more than two-thirds complete, with all the information freely available online. Nick has traveled to China seven times for field work, workshops and Flora of China editorial meetings.
Tomorrow's event will be held from 1-3 p.m. in Jenkins Hall, River view Room 40 Horseshoe Crescent.
