Hybrid Lunchbox Talk: Saving the Wild South: The Fight for Native Plants on the Brink of Extinction
The American South is famous for its astonishingly rich biodiversity. In her new book Saving the Wild South, Georgann Eubanks takes a wondrous trek from Alabama to North Carolina to search out native plants that are endangered and wavering on the edge of erasure. Even as she reveals the intricate beauty and biology of the South’s plant life, she also shows how local development and global climate change are threatening many species, some of which have been graduated to the federal list of endangered species. In this presentation, which also features color images from the book, Georgann will give an overview of the plants and people she visited across the region with a special focus on the species that are among the specimens in the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

Virtual Lunchbox Talk: Naval Stores and the Longleaf Pine Industry in Southeastern NC
In a time before cars, trains, and airplanes, water was often the easiest or the only means of long-distance transportation. Eighteenth-century ships were sailing ships, and they were made almost entirely of wood. Naval stores are goods used in building and maintaining ships. Originally, 'naval stores,' meaning tar, pitch, and turpentine, included everything used to build a ship. All of these products came from pine trees, and particularly, the Longleaf pine, which North Carolina had in abundance. For that reason and others, North Carolina became a key supplier to the British Navy, and naval stores became central to the colony's economy.

Hybrid Lunchbox Talk: By Loch, Glen, and Fairy-Hill: Human Ecology in the Scottish Highlands
The Scottish Highlands have served as a romantic background for popular anglophone fiction from Ossian through Walter Scott’s novels to today’s Outlander. Less well known is how the native Gaels of the Highlands perceived the landscape and their place in the natural order. This presentation will offer a summary of research about Scottish Gaelic tradition and literature through an eco-critical lens. Among other things, it will be demonstrated that fairy-hills are understood to be sacred sites where a sense of attachment to territory and ancestral claims of belonging were focused in Gaelic cosmology. Such communal bonds to land were broken during the expansion of Anglo-British imperialism, leading to large-scale emigration to such colonial destinations as North Carolina.
