February 2020 Meeting
A Botanical Journey from Central Asia to the Middle East
Monday, February 17, 2020 • 7 p.m.
SF County Fair Bldg – 1199 9th Ave, San Francisco
with Dr. Ori Fragman-Sapir
Dr. Ori Fragman-Sapir will share his expertise on the plants of Central Asia and the Middle East. Some of the most striking flower bulbs, as well as blooming trees and other plants, grow in steppes and other arid habitats: Central Asia (Tajikistan and Uzbekistan), the Caucasus (Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan), Turkey, and the Holy Land (Israel to Jordan). These plants show magnificent adaptations to droughts, and many have potential for cultivation.
Dr. Fragman-Sapir has been the scientific editor of the “Flora of Israel Online” website since 2016, and is the scientific director of the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens. He is an expert on the Mediterranean and West Asian floras, as well as on geophytes, plant conservation and sustainable horticulture.
