Happy Thanksgiving from the Plant Biology Department! Ever wondered how many plant species grace your dinner table? While turkey often steals the spotlight, we believe it's time to shine the light on the real stars—the plants! From sweet potatoes, green beans, corn, asparagus to cranberries, plants play a vital role in every Thanksgiving dinner. As we give thanks, let's celebrate the incredible diversity and importance of the plant kingdom in our lives. Wishing you a joyful Thanksgiving filled with gratitude and plenty of plants on your Thanksgiving table!
