SEMINAR SERIES

The Research Department hosts a seminar series that feature speakers on a wide range of topics in evolutionary biology and ecology.

Seminars are open to all and held Fridays at 4 pm, unless otherwise noted. Please check in at the Kiosk and tell admissions staff that you are here for the seminar. You will be admitted at no charge. Out of respect for seminar speakers and to limit disruptions, guests of the Botany Seminar Series will not be admitted to the Garden after 4:10 pm.

Nathalie Nagalingum studies the evolution and diversification of plants, particularly ferns and cycads, and also oversees the Academy’s botany collection. Nagalingum is one of just a handful of researchers worldwide who studies cycads, a palm-like plant that comprises the most endangered group of organisms on Earth. In addition to her research, Nagalingum is passionate about museum science and the opportunity to use her research findings to inform broader conservation projects.
