Plants from the Mountains of Ecuador: April 21st, 2016, Presented by Dr. Susan Munch.

April 21016 Muhlenberg Botanic Club Meeting -7:00 pm at the North Museum in Lancaster

Many of the plants from the mountains and a high plateau that I visited in Ecuador are very tropical in appearance, but because of the altitude and  and cooler temperatures, others are more similar to members of the flora of western North America.  Especially among the herbaceous plants and smaller woody plants there are interesting similarities and differences when they are compared to our plants.  More info about the Trip Dr. Munch was on at the Ceiba Nature Tours Web Site.
