Green Life: From Origins to Angiosperms Class Begins

Plants have an immense impact on our lives – and we often overlook that! In this in-person, two-session class you will look at plants over an evolutionary time scale. Alec Motten, an associate professor emeritus with the Duke University Department of Biology, will begin with a discussion on the origins of photosynthesis and algae. Then, tracing forward through time, he will outline how plants diversified and came to dominate the terrestrial landscape, concluding with the rise of angiosperms. You’ll leave with a fresh appreciation of how plants have shaped our world. Please meet in the Doris Duke Center classroom.

Co-sponsored by the Triangle Land Conservancy (TLC), Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association (ECWA) and Duke Gardens. Please register through the Gardens’ website.
