Provost's Forum - Scot Duncan, "4533+ Species: Why Alabama is a Global Hotspot for Biodiversity"

Come join us this Thursday during Common Hour in Norton Theatre to learn more about the plant species in Alabama and why Alabama has such a wide variety. We are not only home to five physiographic regions (regions of geological variation), but few know that we also have the most species of carnivorous plants!

The lecture will be given by our own Scot Duncan. Dr. Duncan is an Associate Professor of Biology here at BSC. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida and in graduate school, he studied the ecology of tropical forest restoration in Uganda, Africa. His current research focuses on Montane Longleaf Pine forests and the stream ecology of the Cahaba River and Black Warrior River Watersheds.

This is sure to be a very interesting event and we hope to see you there!
