Idaho’s Wicked Plants: Painful, Poisonous, and Pernicious Species

By: Lynn Kinter

We may think of plants as passive organisms that spend their days vegetating, but many are actually defending themselves from being eaten, and a few are capturing or parasitizing other organisms.  This presentation will cover some of the amazing ways that Idaho species defend themselves and procure nutrients.  For example, spurge has caustic sap; devil’s club has inch-long spines; poison hemlock, baneberry, and death camas contain deadly toxins.
