I want to share my #BlackPlantLove for weeds! They are often overlooked and under-appreciated, but they can provide important services (e.g. pollinator habitat) in “disturbed” ecosystems like the city. Plus they can be dang cute! 🥰 #BlackBotanistsWeek
Is Green Infrastructure a Universal Good? Why not find out through a cool new #storymaps that our group as put together? Come see what we found when we explored #Baltimore's green instrastructure and 20 other cities' plans. http://arcg.is/qbTOG @caryinstitute @BESlter
#BlackBotanistsWeek is such a great idea. My first plant ecology research was on ragweed seed germination -- an amazingly adaptive and resilient species. @BESlter @caryinstitute https://twitter.com/drtommyp/status/1280305155360141320
College sparked my interest in community gardens and ethnobotany. Then came community & urban forestry as well as exploring the mechanisms gov and NGOs use to expand canopy. It's all about people-plant relationships. I'm so happy share my experiences this #BlackBotanistsWeek.
Day 2 of #BlackBotanistsWeek - Recently, I have been thinking more about urban #ecology. It blows my mind how #plants must withstand constant disturbance and yet they survive and thrive! This is on my way to the greenhouse. #thistle #PlantInteractions
