Speaker: Dr Fay-Wei Li is with the Boyce Thompson Institute and Cornell. Dr Li is a specialist in the
evolution of ferns and will introduce us to how humans have taken ferns into their lives. Dr Li’s
research indicates that fern survival to the present depended on an ancient accident about 180 million
years ago! Join us for a fascinating talk on those beautiful greens that grace our gardens.
