Program: Travels with a Geobotanist: Plant Life on Serpentine and other Harsh Soils with Dr. Nishi Rajakaruna

Dr. Nishi Rajakaruna fell in love with plants at a young age during a visit to Sinharaja Rainforest, Sri Lanka. He received a BA in human ecology from the College of the Atlantic, and an MS and PhD in botany from the University of British Columbia. He conducted post-doctoral research in plant ecology at Stanford University. His research examines how plant diversity, ecology, and evolution are influenced by serpentine and other ‘unusual’ soils, including those with heavy metals. He has taught botany at College of the Atlantic and San Jose State University during the last 12 years and is currently an associate professor in plant biology at California Polytechnic State University.
