Missing spring break? Tune in to The Graduates to hear about oceanic plants in Hawaii! On Tuesday, April 12th @ 9AM, your host Tesla Monson speaks with ecologist and evolutionary biologist Jun Ying Lim from the Department of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley.

Jun's work focuses on the Hawaiian endemic plant Peperomia, where it came from, when it arrived on Hawaii, and how it diversified across the archipelago. Jun also discusses the importance of biodiversity and conservation, and the threats of invasive species, particularly in Hawaii.
