Virtual Oaks / Oaks at Duke Gardens

Eastern North Carolina’s rich array of native oaks is second only to those of Mexico. Learn more about this fascinating and important group of plants—including their biology, how to identify and distinguish them, and how they impact and interact with their environment—in this online presentation with Paul Manos, Duke University professor of biology and Duke Herbarium curator. The Virtual Oaks presentation is via Zoom and will review nomenclature, speciation and current research. You can register for the virtual session alone, or enroll in both the virtual presentation and the November 3 field session. A Zoom link will be sent in your registration confirmation.

Paul Manos, Ph.D., researches woody plants with a focus on the systematics of Fagaceae (the oak family). His work takes a new look at evolutionary and ecological relationships within the oak family in order to better understand species adaptation and distribution.
