Life on earth is sustained by the plant kingdom, from the air we breathe, to food and nutrients, to plant-derived drugs for the treatment of disease. Understanding plant diversity, as well as its underlying molecular biochemical processes, is central to addressing the challenges of a rapidly changing world, including our survival of climate change. Learn more from a panel of Graduate Center professors, including Renuka Sankaran and Eleanore Wurtzel of Lehman College, as well as Barbara Ambrose and Robbin Moran of the New York Botanical Garden.
Presented with the GC Plant Sciences Program.
