Mature forests in Indiana harbor a great variety of understory plants that flower briefly in the spring and then shrink back to their long-living root systems. on this hike, Dr. Kerry Rabenold (Prof. Emeritus of Biological Sciences, Purdue Univ.) will discuss these plants' relationships with pollinators, seed dispersal strategies, and sensitivity to soil types and disturbance. Moderately rugged hike, trekking poles may be helpful.
