Prototype Quillwort; a living fossil in modern times

July 13, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A look at the rare aquatic plant, Prototype Quillwort with Katie King, Research Assistant at Acadia University. This unique lycophyte plant is only found in Eastern North America, and Nova Scotia has the majority of the known populations. Katie will be talking about what is known about this quillwort, what its current status is, and a look into some of the research being done on this species.

Starting in July and running until the end of August, MTRI will be hosting weekly seminars on Thursday evenings from 7 – 8 p.m. These seminars will be hybrid so you can join online or stop into our field station at 9 Mt Merritt Rd, Kempt to join us and grab some snacks and light refreshments.
