LUNCHBOX Talk: Masting and Other Tricks to Beat the Herbivores
with Bob Peet, Professor of Biology, UNC-Chapel Hill
Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
The world is full of animals that eat plants, so there is strong selection for traits that protect plants from these consumers, or at least limit their success. We will explore some of the resulting diversity of traits that plants have evolved to protect themselves ranging from timing of events to chemical properties.
