Megan DeMarche featured in "In Defense of Plants" podcast


Megan DeMarche, Haines Family Assistant Professor in Plant Biology, was featured in Episode 417 of the acclaimed podcast "In Defense of Plants" by internationally-recognized blogger and podcaster Matt Candeias: 

Environmental change is something that all organisms must deal with throughout their life. This is especially true for long-lived plants. Adapt or die is often the only options available for most plants, but predicting their responses can be extremely difficult. That is where people like Dr. Megan DeMarche come in. Using long term datasets on centuries old alpine plants, Dr. DeMarche and her colleagues are hard at work trying to understand how alpine plants may or may not adapt to rapid changes in their habitat and how these sorts of data can help improve plant conservation efforts.

You can listen to the podcast interview on "Coping with change as an alpine plant" here.
