Interview by Larry Weaner

Dr. Wilhelm is one of America’s foremost botanists. He co-authored the definitive volume, Flora of the Chicago Region (2017), developed the widely used “Floristic Quality Assessment” method for plant community analysis, founded the innovative non-profit “Conservation Research Institute,” and performed innovative research on the relationships between cultural practice and landscape ecology. His academic accomplishments are complemented by the many projects he shepherded to fruition as a principal with the pioneer landscape architecture firm Conservation Design Forum in Lisle, Illinois. Dr. Wilhelm’s sharp intellect, nonconformist perspectives, and vast field experience are sure to produce a stimulating, enlightening, and even paradigm-altering session.
