Spores, roots, shoots and leaves: how plants invaded then dominated dry land.
Dr Weston will talk us through the fascinating evolutionary history of land plants, from the first invaders to the highly diverse, more complex, and sometimes massive, flowering plants. What were the changes that gave some groups the evolutionary edge? And were they victims of their own success? Don’t miss this salutary tale.
