Peter H. Raven, George Engelmann Professor Emeritus of Botany at Washington University and Missouri Botanical Garden President Emeritus, will discuss "Driven by Nature," his newly released autobiography that takes readers across multiple continents and decades. "Driven by Nature" follows the globetrotting botanist from China to the American Midwest as he works to foster concern for a changing planet, further the cause of biological education, and build the Missouri Botanical Garden into the world-renowned haven for plant life it is today. Barbara Schaal, the Mary-Dell Chilton Distinguished Professor and a nationally recognized plant evolutionary biologist, will lead our discussion with Raven expanding on the autobiography and his relationship with WashU through his many years of work in Missouri and around the world.
