LI Botanical Talk

The Long Island Botanical Society announces the following talk:

From the nearly extirpated Hempstead Plains grassland, to the barrier dune ecosystem on Fire Island, to the globally rare dwarf pine plains, to the elusive sea level fen, to the maritime forests and bluffs at Montauk Point, this illustrated talk will show the diversity of natural communities of Long Island. Greg is the Chief Ecologist with the NY Natural Heritage Program. He is the lead editor of Ecological Communities of NY State, and wrote an article, that focused on the ecological communities of Long Island, which appeared in the summer 2006 LIBS newsletter.
