      Presentation and Conversation with Timothy Spira, pollination ecologist and author

      Topic: Interactions between plants and pollinators: Highlights from the Southern Appalachian Mountains
      ​Led by: Timothy Spira

      Presented by: Asheville GreenWorks & Carolina Native Nursery
      Presentation

      Description: Sure to be on every WNC naturalist's bookshelf, Timothy Spira's seminal richly illustrated field guide, Wildflowers and Plant Communities of the Southern Appalachian Mountains and Piedmont: A Naturalist’s Guide, serves as an introduction to the wildflowers and plant communities of the southern Appalachians and the rolling hills of the adjoining piedmont. Rather than organizing plants, including trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants, by flower color or family characteristics, as is done in most guidebooks, botanist Tim Spira takes a holistic, ecological approach that enables the reader to identify and learn about plants in their natural communities. This approach, says Spira, better reflects the natural world, as plants, like other organisms, don't live in isolation; they coexist and interact in myriad ways.
