Night Talk: Spores, roots, shoots & leaves.
Wednesday, 5 March 2014 from 6:30 PM to 7:45 PM (AEDT)
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.
Speaker: Dr Peter Weston, Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust
Date: Wednesday 5 March
Time: 06:30PM until 07:45PM
