Description

Sprinter & Sprummer

... what on earth are they?

In 2014 Tim published Sprinter and Sprummer: Australia’s Changing Seasons, challenging the use of the traditional four seasons in Australia. Indigenous people have long acknowledged the existence of at least six disting seasons.

Come and listen to Professor Tim Entwisle, a highly respected scientist, scientific communicator and Director of Melbourne Botanic Gardens.

He took up the role of Director and Chief Executive of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in March 2013, following two years in a senior role at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, and eight years as Executive Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust in Sydney.

Tim will talk to us about his book and the extra season we need to consider - https://blog.csiro.au/five-seasons-in-australia-meet-sprinter-and-sprummer/

Afternoon tea supplied.
