Lunchtime Talk

Chelsea Specht is an associate professor in the Departments of Plant and Microbial Biology and Integrative Biology, as well as the curator of monocots for the Jepson and University Herbaria. Her research group has developed around the central theme of understanding the evolution of form and function in plants. Specht will add a scientific perspective to Karl Blossfeldt’s photographs of plant forms taken at the turn of the twentieth century.
