Emeritus Professor of Biology David Benzing shows a student a plant from his collection on April 27 as part of the event Biology Open (green)House. The collection of approximately 800 plants is located in a greenhouse on the roof of the Science Center and is managed by Judy Laushman with assistance from senior Elena Loke and first year Julia Butler. Typically not open to the public, the greenhouse welcomed visitors at three open houses this semester.
