Sedge Hunting in Vietnam

Sedge Hunting in Vietnam

Instructor: 

Bruce Ford

Location: 

Kelvin High School, Room 31

Date: 

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

Start Time: 

7:30 pm

Fee: 

$5 for Nature Manitoba members, $10 for non-members (students: $3 for members, $5 for non-members).

Carex (sedges), with over 2100 species, is the world's largest flowering plant genus. Distributed across every continent except Antarctica, these grass-like plants grow in a diversity of habitats including many of the plant communities found here in Manitoba. Although Vietnamese Carex represent a fraction of global sedge diversity (ca. 85 species), they have proven to be key to understanding the evolution and radiation of this incredibly diverse group of plants. Join Bruce as he highlights his findings from two National Geographic Society sponsored expeditions to northern Vietnam, including the discovery of new sedge species to science and his encounters with a flora that is surprisingly similar to Manitoba.
