Science on Sundays: Are ghosts haunting the flora of New Zealand?

Dr Andrew Tanentzap, Department of Plant Sciences
Predators may leave an imprint on the traits of their plant prey that persists even after they become extinct. In this talk, Andrew will introduce the unique adaptations of the New Zealand flora and consider how surrogates for extinct megafauna may help to conserve certain plant species.

This research will help conserve plant diversity and inform landscape restoration.

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

Our seasonal series of Science on Sundays talks run each month between March - August. They bring the latest discoveries in plant science to our visitors in a 30 minute nutshell.

The series is curated by the Garden's Director, Professor Beverley Glover.
