If there were a Guinness Book of World Records for conifers, California would be one of the top record holders: the Golden State has the tallest conifer, the most massive conifer, and the oldest conifer. Learn much more than just conifer trivia at an upcoming workshop, The Origin and Evolution of Conifers, co-hosted by the UCMP and The Jepson Herbarium. Through talks, discussions, and a hands-on lab, you’ll learn all about the origin, evolution, and diversification of this unique plant group. Museum Scientist Diane Erwin, Faculty Curator Cindy Looy, and UCMP Post-doc Lenny Kouwenberg will lead the workshop. It will be held on Saturday, February 6, from 9am to 4pm.
