Barbaloot Suits: Preserving Biodiversity
Mark Olson, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, is a botanist whose research is focused on the endangered vegetation of the world's dry tropical habitats. In this lesson, students will learn about how and why Olson studies plants. Students will compare a situation in which farmers unknowingly destroyed a plant species with the conservation themes outlined in Dr. Seuss's The Lorax, and then summarize the Seuss work through illustration.
