Join us in the Life in One Cubic Foot exhibit to meet and talk with our scientists about their work with spring wildflowers and mycorrhizal fungi and how it serves our Northeast Ohio community. Researchers from our Holden Forests & Gardens’ Long Center for Plant and Environmental Science in Kirtland will provide a brief overview of their research focus areas, guide visitors through the Smithsonian’s Life in One Cubic Foot exhibit, and host a short Q&A. All ages welcome. No reservations required.

Dr. David Burke and Dr. Katie Stuble
Friday, February 23, 2024
10:30 am – 11:00 am

Price: Free – Registration Encouraged

Dr. David Burke is the Vice President for Science and Conservation at Holden Forests & Gardens. Dr. Burke is a leader in the study of beech leaf disease, a new forest pathogen sweeping across North America from its epicenter in northeastern Ohio. Although he’s recently served as a forest pathologist out of need, Dr. Burke is a soil ecologist at heart, primarily interested in the interactions between plants and the microorganisms that live in the soil like the mycorrhizal fungi that form mutually beneficial relationships with plants. Dr. Katie Stuble, Research Chair, focuses on two important drivers of global change: invasive species and global climate change. Stuble has led a number of national collaborations studying the impacts of climate change on plant communities and has explored best practices for doing so. She’s shown that plants around the world alter their phenology when subject to experimental warming, meaning they leaf out or break buds earlier in the spring.
