  • Botany 2013 - "Learned Societies" -- Past, Present, and Future?
    BSA President Elect Diggle Pamela 1 Learned Societies Past Present and Future The formation of learned societies began in the mid 17th century and played a central role in the establishment and practice of modern science I will explore the history and evolution of learned societies from the establishment of the Royal Society for the Improvement of Natural Knowledge in London in 1663 and the American Philosophical Society in in pre revolutionary Philadelphia to the emergence of the diverse professional societies of today From their very inception as venues for conversation and presentation of new ideas learned societies have played and continue to play essential roles in fostering scholarly interactions and communication and in disseminating research I will conclude by considering the future relevance of learned societies including the BSA in our increasingly digital age Given that we can all upload our talks to YouTube download publications instantaneously and be in constant contact via multiple electronic means why have we come to this meeting And what does the future hold for learned societies such as the BSA Broader Impacts Log in to add this item to your schedule 1 University of Colorado Department of Ecology And Evolutionary Biology CAMPUS BOX

  • Botany 2013 - From genes to complex networks and morphologies in plant evolution
    regulatory networks constitute two main approaches to meet such challenge Using examples of flower patterns from the Pandanales particularly the Triuridaceae and the Zingiberales as well as detailed molecular genetic data available for Arabidopsis thaliana both general principles and specific examples of how genotypes map unto phenotypes and morphological evolution will be discussed Theoretical experimental molecular genetic as well as comparative morphology and evolutionary approaches will be integrated to summarize some salient contributions that have been made in plant evo devo studies in our research group and beyond The robustness and overall conservation of the main floral bauplan of angiosperms that consists of concentric whorls of sepals petals stamens and carpels as well as the exceptions to such plan will be approached Gene regulatory network models will be used to address the restriction in the types and arrangements of floral organs among angiosperms as well as how variants in the overall conserved floral plan may arise including the unique homeotic floral arrangement of the Mexican endemic triurid Lacandonia schismatica Triuridaceae a mycoheterotrophic monocotyledonous plant with hermaphroditic homeotic reproductive axes that stands alone among 250 000 species of angiosperms with central stamens surrounded by a peripheral gynoecium We will also summarize molecular genetic data and evolutionary analyses towards the ultimate goal of exploring the mechanisms involved in the evolution of this unique homeotic flower Another source of morphological diversity among flowers in angiosperms concerns the diverse morphogenetic patterns of particular floral organs For example several Zingiberales have petaloid stamens or stamens with laminar instead of radial filaments I will discuss novel hypotheses and explorations combining data derived from transcriptomic and classical molecular genetic experiments to document the involvement of the regulatory modules underlying floral organ specification and polarity to understanding stamen morphology in the Zingiberales The need to further develop theoretical

  • Botany 2013 - The Geological and Natural History of Coastal Louisiana from the Perspective of a Wetland Plant Landscape Ecologist - and a lover of plants
    or create dramatic topography but just a lazy river and its tributaries countless times breaching natural levees as they meandered down a seemingly perfectly flat landscape A good sense of direction or now a GPS aerial photography a boat wet shoes or waders love of mud tolerance of bugs humidity and heat a respect of snakes and alligators are all necessary to fully explore appreciate and study this region This talk in this land of subtleties will describe Louisiana s coast with particular consideration of the delta plain of alluvial inlands created by the dynamic Mississippi River To best understand the botanical and ecological wonder of the delta plain a Landscape of Scale approach will first describe the common geological and ecological events and patterns on small local scales a single delta lobe to then apply to the entire river delta scale To contextualize the delta plain of the full Louisiana coast one must realize that this plain is bracketed between two different other geological landscapes the chenier plain along the central west Louisiana coast to the Texas border and the flood plain of the Pearl River to the east along Louisiana s border with Mississippi These three remarkable and unique coastal plain wetland landscapes bordering the Gulf of Mexico have historically been generally in flux with two opposing aquatic forces rivers Mississippi and Pearl with their freshwater and flood carrying sediments and the Gulf with it s saltwater and intrusions from tropical storms Overlaid onto this mixture of natural and geological histories comes the very recent human intrusions of great consequence from oil and gas exploration extraction invasive species climate change overharvest and the BP oil spill Additionally there was Hurricane Katrina in 2005 an event significantly exacerbated by the human condition This region of the world is an
