Biologist David Haskell uses a one-square-meter patch of old-growth Tennessee forest as a window into the ecology and evolution of North American forests. Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace nature's path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its inhabitants to vivid life in his book, The Forest Unseen: A Year's Watch in Nature, and in this talk, which offers scientific insights into the workings of forests and personal reflections on the practice of close observation of nature. A book signing will follow.
Venue Description: A museum for the 21st century, with a rich and storied past and one of the greatest natural history museums in the world, with over 40 exhibition halls. Open daily from 10am to 5:45pm except on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
