University of Georgia botanist Robert Wyatt will present the third talk in the Natural History Lecture Series at 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 in the auditorium of the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library. His lecture, “Sex in the Garden,” will be preceded by a reception with coffee and cookies, and is free and open to all.
This lecture is a tongue-in-cheek presentation about various facets of plant reproduction, dealing with plant sexuality in a humorous and anthropomorphic manner, considering such questions as are males really necessary, does it always take two to tango, and does size matter? Wyatt uses real-world examples to stimulate thinking about plant reproduction, while simultaneously entertaining the audience with comparisons and contrasts—some rather far-fetched—to animal, including human, reproduction.
Wyatt obtained his bachelor’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his doctorate from Duke University, both in botany. He taught for two years at Texas A&M University before joining the faculty at the University of Georgia, where he was a professor of botany and ecology for more than 20 years and still retains an adjunct appointment. From 1999 to 2005 he was the executive director of the Highlands Biological Station, an interinstitutional center of the University of North Carolina. He has won numerous awards for teaching and research, including a Guggenheim Fellowship that enabled him to produce a book, Ecology and Evolution of Plant Reproduction. He has trained more than 40 graduate students, received millions of dollars in research grants, and published more than 160 scientific papers.
The Natural History Lecture Series is organized by the Friends of the Georgia Museum of Natural History, a non-profit organization that supports and advances the mission and programs of the Museum by increasing public awareness, supporting service and outreach programs, fundraising and mobilizing other resources. The Series is co-sponsored by the Friends of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia.
The spring and summer lectures coincided with the exhibit “John Abbot, Early Georgia’s Naturalist Artist,” which includes watercolor illustrations from the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript collections, The exhibit celebrates the 20th anniversary of the James W. Woodruff, Sr. Center for the Natural History of Georgia and will be on view through August.
