Description

Flowers carry a multitude of iconic meanings – including love, honour and death – and have many uses, from traditional medicine to decoration. But what is their significance in a research world?

Join Monika Murcha and Julia Grassl, two leading investigators from the Plant Energy Biology Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence at UWA, and the Cooperative Research Centre for Honey Bee Products to learn about the role of plants and their flowers in molecular studies and the vital relationship between bees and flowers.
