Michael Siuta, a member of the society since its inception in 1983, will give a presentation called “Meet the Spurge Family.” He will examine the Euphorbiaceae family, which occurs around the world and whose relationship with man goes way back in history. This fascinating family has given us medicines, poisons, allergens, industrial products, weeds, wildflowers and ornamental plants.
