First Sunday Meeting
The Evolutionary History of Flowers Dec. 5, 2010 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Our speaker on Sunday, December 5th, will be Dr. Joseph H. Williams from the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Flowering plants, the angiosperms, make up the vast majority of the green world in which we live. The origin of flowering plants was truly a "big bang" in evolutionary history. In this presentation Dr. Williams shows what researchers have learned over the past 150 years as they came to understand the reproduction mechanism of flowering plants and why this unique process has been so successful.

Join us at the Cafeteria Annex of the Goins Building on the campus of Pellissippi State Technical Community College. For directions/map, see our website - www.rationalists.org.
