Science Pub From Home – Focus on Orchids: Microscopic Oberonia
Get closer than ever to delicate flowers in a favorite family: orchids. From casual orchid-lovers to professional researchers, all are welcome as Curator of Malacology Daniel L. Geiger, Ph.D., turns his scanning electron microscope away from miniscule mollusks to reveal the hidden world of microorchids. Explore how the detailed examination of minute orchid flowers helps us understand broad biological topics ranging from biodiversity and reproductive isolation to conservation and pollination biology. Dr. Geiger holds an appointment as a visiting research scholar with the Huntington Botanical Gardens, and combines herbarium work with advanced scanning electron microscopy, ultraviolet reflective imaging, and molecular phylogenetics.

Join our fun and friendly conversation, and quench your thirst for knowledge about science and nature. Like our real-life venue Dargan’s, this Zoom webinar is free, but has limited capacity.
