Why Science? Explore Research at UF: Horticulture

In this video, Erin Alvarez describes the work she does in landscape management and people-plant interactions for the "Why Science?" project at the Florida Museum of Natural History. The project is geared towards children, and features UF researchers talking about their work and how they became interested in their subject.

Alvarez describes landscape management as "how we use our resources and how we manipulate the landscape" as homeowners. Her work covers subjects like the creation of public gardens and teaching classes in sensory gardening.
