Suzanne Koptur – Plant Ecologist [Audio Slideshow]

Suzanne Koptur is a plant ecologist, conservation biologist and a professor at Florida International University. She studies the breeding systems of captive Milkweed Vines to better understand how they reproduce with one another. She self-pollinates them in the on-campus greenhouse. She strives to make people aware of the importance of interactions between plants and animals.
