A Natural History of the Anza-Borrego Region
January 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
This talk will introduce the new book, A Natural History of the Anza-Borrego Region. The book resulted from a class taught by the authors at the University of San Diego for 16 years. It describes how the desert landscape was formed over a period of tens of millions of years and how its present climate developed. It also discusses how the desert’s plants and animals are adapted to this challenging environment, and how they interact to form amazingly diverse ecological communities. The book also addresses the first human communities to enter this region and how they, through their intimate knowledge of this challenging environment were thrive for thousands of years.
Monday, January 13, 2020 from 10 am to 11 am in the Great Room at the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center.
The Botany Society is a volunteer unit of ABDSP focused on studying and protecting the botanical resources of the park.
