Robyn J. Burnham gives an illustrated presentation of the updated flora of the University of Michigan’s E.S. George Reserve as compiled by her and botanist Michael Penskar during 2019-20. The George Reserve, located just west of Hell, Michigan, is a 1,270 acre area, enclosed by a high deer fence, that has been managed by the U-M since the 1930s. Added to previously known occurrences were more than 100 species; including ferns, orchids, grasses, sedges, and even trees. Robyn will discuss the flora of the reserve in the context of the documented flora of Livingston county.

Robyn J. Burnham is Emerita Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Michigan and serves as director of the E.S. George Reserve. She earned a master’s and Ph.D. in botany at the University of Washington; spent her postdoc years at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and served as botanist at the New Mexico Museum of Science in Albuquerque. She is an expert in tropical vines (lianas) – a passion which evolved from observing the abundance of their leaves in leaf litter in tropical lowland forests of Mexico, Peru, and Ecuador. She now spends some of our winter months in tropical Brazil, where she investigates the impact of forest fragmentation on vine abundance and diversity.
