Dennis Albert, Ph.D. discusses the endemic flora of the Playa Lakes of the Hart Mountain (Oregon) and Sheldon Wildlife (Nevada) refuges, with a focus on the smaller playas on the tops of the basalt rim rock. The flora changes dramatically from low water to dry water years, and he will be showing plants characteristic of both conditions. He will also discuss the zones that occur along the edges and in the middle of the playas. Albert is an alumnus of the University of Michigan School of Environment and Sustainability and is currently a research professor in the horticulture department at Oregon State University. He also teaches summer courses at the U-M Biostation in northern Michigan.
