Plant society looks at galls

 Posted: 12:00 PM April 16, 2014

Ronald Russo, author of "Plant Galls of California and Other Western States," will describe how bizarre plant growths like oak apples, honeydew ambrosia galls and witches' brooms are produced by host plants in response to invading insects and other organisms.

He will speak at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 17, at Southern Oregon University, Science Building, Room 171, on the Ashland campus. Refreshments will be served at 6:45 p.m., followed by a meeting of the Siskiyou Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Oregon and Russo's program. The event is free and open to all.
