Plant Conservation at the Morton Arboretum

Morton Arboretum, Illinois - United States

Plant conservation at the Morton Arboretum focuses on conserving plant diversity of the Chicago region at the community and species level. Much of this work is with Arboretum Research Associates, as well as with other collaborators. We are interested in the distribution and assemblage of plant communities across the Chicago region, how this vegetation changes over time and how it responds to fire management. We are also interested in plant restoration ecology, including both endangered species and plant communities.
