Portrait Photograph of Edgar Spalding

Edgar Spalding


Department of Botany

Edgar Spalding grew up in rural Nova Scotia and became deeply interested in nature, and a life-long birder (including photography). But, in college he became interested less in nature and more in the physical and chemical aspects of life processes — physiology is the best word. He was not interested in human physiology like all his pre-med pals but in plant physiology. So he returned to his native USA for grad school (Penn State), postdoctoral work (Yale), and joined the faculty at UW–Madison in 1994.
