Dr. Chris Martine, the David Burpee Chair in Plant Genetics and Research at Bucknell University, and his film team have been producing the video series, “Plants are Cool, Too,” which is co-sponsored by the Botanical Society of America. The goal is to highlight that plant research is indeed cool, fascinating and important. The episode, “Extreme Weeds of Parking Lots,” features the extreme plant life of the asphalt jungle and the research of Associate Professor Lena Struwe’s lab. It was sponsored by the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences and the Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, was filmed in the Cook Campus parking lots in October.
