Welcome to 2015, and our first group meeting on Saturday January 3rd at 2pm. The talk will be:
Dr Brenda Harold, a.k.a ‘The Botany Geek’ – ‘Flower Power; How Plants Control Animals’
Dr Harold is a qualified botanist and retired university lecturer. This talk is about how plants defend themselves (physically and chemically) from herbivores, how they occasionally become carnivores, and how they use animals to carry their pollen and seeds. Beautifully illustrated with digital photos of British wild flowers.
Brenda also teaches a plant identification course which you can see here.
