Annual Carteret County Master Gardeners Public Education Program

"Exploring Native Coastal Plants of the Carolinas"

Lecture by Paul Hosier, Professor Emeritus of Botany at UNC Wilmington 

Whether you’re a lifetime resident of coastal Carolina, or are new to the coastal environment, author Paul Hosier’s new publication about native coastal plants offers fresh insight into identifying and landscaping with coastal plants. Seacoast Plants of the Carolinas: A New Guide for Plant Identification and Use in the Coastal Landscape is a comprehensive read for the layman that focuses specifically on coastal plants and the coastal environments. On Wednesday, February 12, at 10:00 a.m. at the Crystal Coast Civic Center Dr. Hosier will be speaking at a free public program coordinated by Carteret County Master Gardeners. The public is invited for refreshments prior to the lecture at 9:30a.m.

Hosier’s book focuses on the beaches, dunes, maritime grasslands, shrub thickets, maritime forests and salt shrub thickets. He identifies invasive plants, landscaping with native coastal plants, native vegetation and coastal storms. Other chapters speak of climate change and the flora of the coastal Carolinas. Plant profiles cover from ferns to trees and shrubs and focus on these higher plant species. Information for natural areas, where visitors may view coastal plants and plant communities, are listed for both North and South Carolina.

Dr. Hosier has a Ph.D. from Duke University and is professor emeritus in the Dept. of Biology and Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.  Following retirement in 2013, after 41 years of teaching at UNCW, he remains an adjunct professor at the institution. His research efforts have been directed toward studies of the impact of off-road vehicles on shorelines, the impact of hurricanes on the vegetation of barrier islands, and ecological processes of barrier islands in the southeast.
