Automatic TRANSCRIPT

<p>Today we are taking a deeper look at the most diverse woody plant lineage in western North America. I am of course talking about the manzanitas (<em>Arctostaphylos</em> spp.). Joining us is San Francisco State Professor Dr. Tom Parker who has devoted much of his career to uncovering the ecology and evolution of the manzanita lineage. From mutualistic relationships with rodents and fungi to their dependence on fire, you will soon find that manzanitas play an important role in the ecology of California's natural ecosystems. It is time we start paying these plants the respect they deserve and I hope this episode is a good start to doing just that. This episode was produced in part by Hall, Vegreville Creek and Wetlands Fund, Kevin, Oliver, John, Johansson, Christina, Jared, Hannah, Katy Pye, Brandon, Gwen, Carly, Stephen, Botanical Tours, Moonwort Studios, Lisa, Liba, Lucas, Mohsin Kazmi Takes Pictures, doeg, Clifton, Stephanie, Rachelle, Benjamin, Eli, Rachael, Anthony, Plant By Design, Philip, Brent, Ron, Tim, Homestead Brooklyn, Brodie, Kevin, Sophia, Brian, Mark, Rens, Bendix, Irene, Holly, Caitlin, Manuel, Jennifer, Sara, and Margie.</p><p><a href="http://online.sfsu.edu/parker/index.html" target="_blank">Learn more about Dr. Parker’s work</a></p><p><a href="https://teespring.com/stores/indefenseofplants" target="_blank">Check out In Defense of Plants merch!</a></p><p><a href="http://www.patreon.com/indefenseofplants" target="_blank">Support this podcast</a></p><p><a href="http://www.moneycat.bandcamp.com" target="_blank">Music by Moneycat</a></p>
