LOWBROW BOTANY, with digressions on evolutionary history, phylogenetics, systematics, and the hunt for the filthiest public bathroom in Alta California

In this episode we ramble about a rare Northern California Cypress species known only from twelve populations and figure out just what the hell that spot on the map that says “Research Natural Area” means, with a bit of insight from Julie Kierstead, former Forest Service Botanist for the Shasta-Trinity National Forest who has identified 5 “new” species in Northern California which were previously unknown to science.
