Science on Sundays: How flowering plants pattern ...

Dr Edwige Moyroud
... their petals

Join Dr Edwige Moyroud from the Sainsbury Laboratory, University of Cambridge for this third talk in the series.

Flowering plants very often display striking patterns on their petals. These patterns are key to attract pollinators and are very elaborate, combining different pigmentations but also an array of amazing microscopic features that play a key role in plant-insects communication. How flowering plants control the development of their petals to produce those patterns is still mysterious. This talk will look at what scientists inn Cambridge and elsewhere are doing to try and solve this enigma.

Free 30 minute talk starting 11am and repeated at 2pm.
