Nearly 300,000 species of plants live on Earth today. This lively course with curator of paleontology Ian Miller starts with the first land plants and moves through the 400 million-year history of plant evolution on Earth. Learn the major groups of plants and how fossils allow paleobotanists to reconstruct ancient environments and climates. A field trip to Denver Botanic Gardens on Saturday, December 13 provides an opportunity to look at modern plants from the perspective of their ancient history. Paleontology 101 is a prerequisite for this course.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the program.
