Speaker: Dr. Keith Wade.
Description of talk: Western Australia is home to one of the world's richest floras and spectacular spring wildflower displays. This illustrated lecture is based on an early spring tour in 2005 led by Keith Wade for Capilano College and Great Expeditions, and explores some of the richest botanical and zoological regions of Western Australia, from the Fitzgerald River National Park in the south to Shark Bay in the north.
Dr. Keith Wade is an ecologist and biogeographer who taught at Capilano College for 39 years, during which time he led botanical and natural history tours to many parts of the world. Since retiring six years ago, he has continued to lead one or two such tours a year under the auspices of Great Expeditions. He is currently Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Biology, Capilano University.
