NPSOT, Dallas Chapter: Texas Native Plants and Climate Change

Local evolutionary biologist, botanist and author, Dr. George Diggs, will be speaking on Texas Native Plants and Climate Change. Dr. Diggs will briefly summarize the most recent evidence for climate change and will discuss his personal observations from Antarctica to the Arctic. It is now clear that climate change is having effects on plants and animals both around the globe and here in Texas.  A variety of specific examples will be discussed that demonstrate the impacts of climate change, both large and small, and from those that affect whole regions to our own backyards.

George Diggs has taught for 40 years at Austin College in Sherman, and a Research Associate at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas. His research interests include the plants of Texas, evolution as it relates to human health, climate change, and biogeography. He has co-authored four books and more than 30 scientific articles. In his research he has traveled to all seven continents. His latest books are The Hunter-Gatherer Within: Health and the Natural Human Diet, co-authored with Dr. Kerry Brock, and The Ferns & Lycophytes of Texas, co-authored with Barney Lipscomb.
