    How does a plant grow? How does it manage water and nutrients? What factors influence the production of flowers and fruits? Instructor Alec Motten, an associate professor of biology at Duke, will explore these questions and more using a combination of lecture and hands-on approaches. Class continues on Tuesdays through Feb. 19. $Pre-registration required. Parking included. (919) 668-1707. Sarah P. Duke Gardens, 420 Anderson St. gardens.duke.edu.
