Speaker: Lisa Standley, Ph.D.
Lisa is a plant systematist specializing in sedges (the Cyperaceae), author of the Field Guide to Carex of New England, and I'm the Curator of the Vascular Plant Herbarium of the New England Botanical Society. She is retired, and spent much of her professional career as an environmental scientist working in wetland ecology, permitting, and environmental impact statements for major infrastructure projects (including the Downeaster rail project and the Aroostook County Transportation study).
The presentation will be technical in nature and cover the key features of sedges, rushes, and grasses. Lisa will describe the common and dominant species for each lacustrine habitat type. It is sure to be an exciting and informative final Fridays at 4 for Lakes for the 2022 season. Please join us!
