Biological Sciences Seminar

HSU Campus
All are welcome to attend this week's seminar! Dr. Jonathan Wilson, Haverford College, will present “Structure and function in extinct plants: the early history of water transport”

Plants are unique among multicellular organisms because much of their physiology is biophysical, rather than behavioral, and the anatomy that defines these biophysical capabilities is preserved in the fossil record. Mathematical models, when applied to fossilized plant organs—particularly leaves and stems—can provide quantitative insight into the physiology and ecology of plants that have been extinct for hundreds of millions of years. Comparing the physiology of extinct plants with strategies that are currently employed by living plants sheds light on ecophysiological trajectories in plant evolutionary history.

In this presentation, I will describe the history of water transport in land plants and focus on two case studies of extinct plants: Psilophyton, an early-diverging vascular plant that was common on floodplain environments 390 million years ago, and Glossopteris, a tree that formed broadleaf polar forests more than 250 million years ago. Each of these plants contains anatomical features that result in novel physiologies, and together they represent the early evolution of physiological complexity in terrestrial ecosystems.
