Plants turn sugars into fibres that give plants strength and shape. These fibres are important in our food, textiles, paper and buildings. We will see how recent discoveries reveal how the fibres are made and then woven into wood.
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.
Booking Details: Science on Sundays are free, drop-in 30 minute talks suitable for 12+. No pre-booking required. Entry charges to the Garden apply.
