    Pamela Diggle, Evolutionary Biologist University of Colorado and Harvard University Wed Nov 16 7:00–8:30pm Weld Hill Research Building Pumpkins, squash, peas, beans, turnips, carrots, potatoes, parsnip, spinach, corn, apples, pecans, cabbage, and more are common components of a Thanksgiving feast.
