Historical Ecology: Using Plants to Reveal the Past
Thursday, June 24, noon – 1:30 p.m. CDT
Every landscape has a story that can be teased out using both field evidence and archival resources. This session explores the field marks of landscape history with a focus on plants that tell a broader story. While no individual plant species can explain a site’s land-use history entirely, when taken collectively, plant associations reveal patterns of past land use. These concepts can help achieve a better understanding of your own land, deepen your understanding of natural areas and consider the species selections for planting locations.
