in University Lecture
Homer L. Shantz, in a University
lecture sponsored by the Michigan
Academy of Science, Arts and Letters,
will discuss "Vegetation, What It
Means," at 4:15 p.m. Friday in Natur-
al Science Auditorium.
Shantz, head of the Division of
Wild Life Management in the Na-
tional Forest Service since 1936, served
previously as investigator with the
Bureau of Plant Industry of the De-
partment of Agriculture.
Famed chiefly as an expert botan-
ist and zoologist Shantz has traveled
in that capacity throughout North
and South America as well as Africa.
The research conducted,in his trav-
els, especially in East Africa, are
considered basic to a study of botany
and zoology in those regions.
Shantz is the author of numerous
publications dealing with plant phys-I
iology and with natural vegetation.
He especially interested himself in
the value of natural vegetation as an
indication of the agricultural capa-
bilities of land.
Born in Michigan, he studied at
Colorado College and the University
of Nebraska. He has taught at Colo-
rado College, the University of Ne-
braska, the University of Missouri,
the University of Louisiana, the Uni-
versity of Illinois and Clark Universi-
ty. He is a former president of the
University of Arizona.
