How do angiosperms reproduce sexually? Ed Lignowski, Ph.D., will answer that question during a discussion on the life cycle of flowering plants, from pollination to fruit and seed dispersal. The general anatomy of flowers will be covered; specific examples of native plants will be used to illustrate the many interesting differences in floral structure and function that occur in nature. The events following pollination, leading to the development of fruits and seeds, will be explained. Learn about various types of native plant fruits and see examples of how they provide nutrition for wildlife. This presentation will be followed by an outdoor tour.  Professional CEUs are available.
