Ferns are vascular plants that have been around as a major plant group since the time of the dinosaurs! They reproduce by spores (not flowers) and have lots of other cool, interesting features.  During this morning class we will discuss the basic parts and morphological features of ferns, introduce the basic fern life-cycle, and highlight the ferns that are present in natural areas at the Arboretum, and how to identify them!

In this position, she is responsible for collecting voucher specimens and verifying the identity of the trees within the Arboretum.  She has a B.S. in Botany from the University of Washington and a Ph.D. in Plant Biology from the University of California at Davis.
