Tuesdays, Apr 1, 8, 15 9:00 am – 12:00 pm Full-day field trip on April 22 This course is intended for a broad audience and introduces students to North Carolina’s rich diversity of plant communities. Variations in climate and soil types across the state as well as other factors have resulted in the creation of distinctive regions: subtropical maritime forests, salt marshes, longleaf pine savannas and sandhills, pocosins, oak-hickory forests, bottomland hardwoods, spruce-fir forests, rock outcrops and glades, relict prairies, and grasslands. This course explores the causes and history of North Carolina’s plant community diversity. Class sessions include nine hours of lecture and a full day field trip with transportation provided. No Prerequisites. Fee: $125 ($115 NCBG members)
