How Extreme Weather Affects Flora and Fauna with Jim Varnum

Jim will talk about climate, weather and extreme weather and the effect on animals and plants. Hurricanes, droughts, polar vortices (that's the new term for last winter's weather) - affect people for many miles around. Our gardens dry out, our city imposes water moratoria, we get cabin fever watching the Weather Channel, etc. But what about the flora and fauna around us? Plants dry out and burn, birds are thrown miles off course, and land features are rearranged.
