In this episode of Between the Leaves at the Lloyd, join professor, botanist and invasive species expert Theresa Culley, PhD, as she describes how a chance encounter with a sapling she couldn't identify shifted the course of her research career.

Like so many other important stories about nature in the state and beyond, this one has roots that reach back into the collections at the Lloyd.
