Keynote address
“Florida Plant Diversity in a Changing Climate”
presented by University of Florida Distinguished Professors
Pamela and Douglas Soltis

Pam and Doug Soltis

What will Florida’s ecosystems look and feel like in the future? Using herbarium records, scientists can predict how Florida’s native plants will react to our changing climate. Some species, for instance, will face extinction due to the shrinking of suitable habitat. Others, such as those adapted to the Central Florida scrub, may greatly expand their presence. Learn how an “evolutionary tree” is being built with molecular samples from herbarium collections to predict Florida’s natural future.
