Presennter: Jeannette Whitton, Director University of British Columbia Herbarium, Canada’s SARA & COSEWIC

Dr. Whitton is a plant evolutionary biologist whose research aims to explain the origin, spread,

and persistence of new lineages, using focal species complexes in plants.

She currently focuses on two groups in the sunflower family, the Rocky

Mountain genus *Townsendia*, and the North American *Crepis* complex, both

of which include derived asexual (apomictic) lineages that have arisen and

now share the landscape with their sexual progenitors. However, her

presentation here will be about her involvement with the Species at Risk

Act (SARA), Canada's analog to the U.S. *Endangered Species Act (ESA).
