Are plants out to get us?  Learn more about the relatively few plant species that are truly dangerous to humans.  This presentation will introduce us to some of the plants in our flora that can cause poisoning, hallucinations, dermatitis, or other problems if ingested or handled.  We will also discuss rumors, urban legends, and other exaggerated fears of plants and the natural world.
