Fossil pollen reveals looking at the past

Article published on Thursday, Oct. 23, 2008

PINELLAS COUNTY – Fossil pollen is often called the fingerprint of ancient plants. Noted scientist and author David M. Jarzen, Ph.D., at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, uses fossil pollen to determine what sorts of plants lived in particular places long ago.

Plants the dinosaurs walked among share many features with the plants of today. These similarities allow scientists, with the help of artists, to reconstruct early landscapes in dazzling detail.

Dr. Jarzen will bring amusing anecdotal tales to the Environmental Lands Division’s premiere education centers to discuss how scientists work with artists to express natural history knowledge through color and beauty. The scientist will give guest lectures at two locations:

– On Friday, Oct. 24, from 7 to 8 p.m., Dr. Jarzen will share his insights and expertise at Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center, 1500 Weedon Drive N.E., St. Petersburg. For information, call 727-453-6500.

– On Saturday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 2 p.m., Dr. Jarzen will speak at Brooker Creek Preserve Environmental Education Center, 3940 Keystone Road, Tarpon Springs. For information, call 727-453-6800.

Both lectures are free and open to the public.  However, pre-registration for these talks, best suited for adults, is requested.

Both education centers are managed by the County’s Environmental Lands Division.  As one of six sections in the Department of Environmental Management, the Division is responsible for the stewardship of more than 15,000 acres of wild lands and waterways.  Weedon Island Preserve and Brooker Creek Preserve are two of the Division’s largest parcels open to the public every day of the year.

For more information about the County’s preserves and management areas, call 727-453-6900 or visit www.pinellascounty.org/environment.
