This is our first "ASK THE EXPERT" episode of our BioBlitz! Oklahoma podcast. Priscilla Crawford and Angelina Stancampiano, BioBlitz! Oklahoma Co-coordinators, chat with botanist Adam Ryburn, professor at Oklahoma City University.
How does mistletoe get up into trees? Are all evergreens conifers? What do plants have to do with the three wise men? We talk about holiday traditions around some of our native and non-native plants and discuss the biology, ecology, and cultural history of a wide variety of flowering and cone-bearing plants.
We encourage you to learn more about Oklahoma's trees with the Forest Trees of Oklahoma book from Oklahoma Forestry services - only $8! https://forestry.ok.gov/store
We would love to explore your questions on future ASK the Experts episodes! You can send your questions to us as a Facebook message, a tweet, or simply email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
