by Dr. Robert Naczi
Wednesday, November 12
Refreshments served at 7 pm, lecture begins at 7:30pm
Meeting Room at the Katonah Village Library
26 Bedford Road, Katonah Dr. Naczi

Explore the beauty, ecology, identification challenges, and importance of the intertidal plants of the Hudson River estuary. Often overlooked, when it comes to conservation these plants are some of the most important plants that thrive in eastern North American estuaries and provide critical services to humans and wildlife. Dr. Rob Naczi will lead us on a botanical tour of these plants, and their prospects for continued survival.

Dr. Naczi earned his B.S. in Biology from St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, and his Ph.D. in Botany from the University of Michigan. He is the Arthur J. Cronquist Curator of North American Botany at the New York Botanical Garden and an authority on the flora of the eastern US. He co-authored Mistaken Identity? Invasive Plants and their Native Look-alikes: An identification guide for the Mid-Atlantic) and is presently writing a comprehensive account of the Northeast’s plants: A New Manual of Vascular Plants of Northeastern United States and Adjacent Canada. He has published widely on Carex, the largest genus of flowering plants in North America (500 species) and in most temperate regions of the world (2000 species world- wide). His work on pitcher plants reveals fundamental aspects of their biology, which is still poorly known, despite their popularity.
