Love ferns? Don’t miss our chapter meeting October 10th when Dr. Jordan Metzgar will discuss his research on the evolution of diverse fern lineages, including eusporangiate neotropical ferns, Danaea;¬†stately Osmundaceae;¬†heterosporous nitrogen-fixing aquatic fern Azolla;¬†and glacier-loving boreal Cryptogramma. These studies have helped decipher the patterns and timing of diversification across ferns by spanning the field, herbarium, and laboratory. He will also tell us about his new home at Virginia Tech’s Massey Herbarium, the largest collection of plant specimens in the state.
