Forests disappeared 252 million years ago during Earth's largest mass extinction. Museum of Paleontology paleobiologists may have discovered why using a novel approach--growing modern trees under proposed mass extinction conditions in a lab. Join Jeff Benca on a journey through a time-machine experiment to piece together Earth's largest murder mystery. This event is part of the Berkeley Natural History Museums and Department of Integrative Biology lecture series.
