In this Xpeditions lesson, students learn about how and why National Geographic Emerging Explorer Mark Olson studies plants. Students compare a situation in which farmers unknowingly destroyed a plant species with the conservation themes outlined in Dr. Seuss's "The Lorax," and then summarize the Seuss work through illustration. This lesson is based on the National Geographic news article titled "Scaring Up 'Ghost Plants' in Mexico."
