Science on Sunday Talk – How Flowering Plants Pattern Their Petals

Sunday May 20

Usual entry fees

The ‘Science on Sundays’ series talks at the Botanic Gardens.

The talks are held in the Garden’s classroom, close to the Brookside entrance. Talks are free but normal garden admission charges do apply; there is no need to book, just drop-in to the Classroom at 11.00 am or 2.00 pm.

How Flowering Plants Pattern Their Petals .

Flowering plants very often display striking patterns on their petals which are key to attracting pollinators. They are very elaborate, combining different pigmentations, but also an array of microscopic features that play a key role in plant-insect communication. How flowering plants produce those patterns is still unknown and this talk will look at what scientists in Cambridge and elsewhere are doing to try and solve this enigma.

Join Dr Edwige Moyroud, Sainsbury Laboratory, University of Cambridge, for this Science on Sundays talk.
