Wild Speaker Series

A Natural History of the Mojave Desert

 Join us as we welcome Lawrence Walker and Frederick Landau, Authors of A Natural History of the Mojave Desert, as our May speakers. Their presentation will follow their research into the natural history of the Mojave Desert we call home. Our speakers will discuss how plants and animals adapt to the heat and dryness of the Mojave Desert and an overview on how humans have shaped and been shaped by the Mojave Desert as well. The Mojave Desert has a rich natural history. Despite being sandwiched between the larger Great Basin and Sonoran Deserts, it has enough mountains, valleys, canyons, and playas for any eager explorer.  Join us May 3rd for an entertaining talk about the Mojave Desert and learn from our presenters who bring over 60 years of combined experience to our event!

Lawrence R. Walker is a professor of plant ecology at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is the (co)author or (co)editor of nine previous books, including The Biology of Disturbed Habitats. Frederick H. Landau is a research associate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Walker and Landau have twenty-five years of scientific collaboration that includes projects in Nevada, New Zealand, and Puerto Rico. This will be a lecture you won't want to miss.

We will see you there!
