Brownbag Lectures: Believe in Miracles: Osage-Orange

  • Location: ISM Research & Collections Center, Springfield
  • Date: Wednesday, March 26, 2014, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Presented by Guy Sternberg, Starhill Forest Arboretum

This is the fascinating story of the Osage-orange tree, from the Pleistocene to the future. Learn about its surprising fossil history and its modern adaptation to anthropogenic vectors, human history, chemical and structural properties, unique genetic diversity, and adaptability to a world threatened by urban blight and a destabilized climate. Meet the nearest thing to a Miracle Tree!
