Seeing Seeds: A Journey into the World of Seedheads, Pods, and Fruit

Sunday, November 4, 2:00pm
Science Center, Swarthmore College
Swarthmore, PA

Join author Teri Dunn Chace for an engrossing presentation based on her award-winning book, Seeing Seeds: A Journey into the World of Seedheads, Pods, and Fruit. In Teri’s words, “every seed tells a story.” Though small and often not noticed or examined carefully, seeds are simply amazing—what they look like, what they do, and how they do it, as they work towards their astounding goal of self-replication.Teri finds the strangeness and fascination in the seeds of plants as familiar as oaks and dandelions, and as curious as figs and hellebores. Robert Llewellyn’s gorgeous photographs will illustrate her talk, and Teri will explain his “image-stacking” technique.

A reception will follow with books available for purchase. Free and open to the public; space limited to 200. Lecture cosponsored with the Associates of the Scott Arboretum
