Canopy Meg, Real Life Lorax, Einstein of the Treetops. Meg has been called many affectionate names. She is Director of Global Initiatives, Lindsay Chair of Botany and Senior Scientist in Plant Conservation, pioneered the science of canopy ecology.
For over thirty years, she has designed hot‐air balloons and walkways for treetop exploration to solve mysteries in the world’s forests, especially insect pests and ecosystem health. We are fortunate to have a canopy walk in Myakka State Park that has been an outstanding learning experience for students of all ages.
