The American South is famous for its astonishingly rich biodiversity. In her new book Saving the Wild South, Georgann Eubanks takes a wondrous trek from Alabama to North Carolina to search out native plants that are endangered and wavering on the edge of erasure. Even as she reveals the intricate beauty and biology of the South’s plant life, she also shows how local development and global climate change are threatening many species, some of which have been graduated to the federal list of endangered species. In this presentation, which also features color images from the book, Georgann will give an overview of the plants and people she visited across the region with a special focus on the species that are among the specimens in the North Carolina Botanical Garden.
