This was a fantastic and inspiring talk, great to see an academic with such drive and ability to communicate his subject. Great content for stimulating further ideas to build on what has already been achieved.
Attending the reception was a great way to meet some great Cornell staff , both active and retired, and hear a really accessible talk about plant science and visit Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Science and meet some of their scientists!
The show is up through end of October, 40 beautiful photographs that go beyond realism to portraiture of...botanicals, mostly taken right from David's backyard. David O. Watkins was director of Media Services at Cornell for so many years...fun to see his own art work! And the atrium at BTI looks great...reflection pool, orchids and many other plants on display
