Plants for Pollinators: Using DNA barcoding to understand the best plants for pollinating insects;

Dr Natasha de Vere is a Botanist and the Head of Science at the National Botanic Garden of Wales with an interest in conservation biology and, in a time of climate change, particularly in understanding complex ecosystems. 

In 2012 Wales became the first country to barcode every one of its native flowering plants. Using this information, Natasha and the team have been able to start to understand the plant preferences of bees and other pollinators. Join us as she explains this fascinating exploration into the world of pollination.

The ticket price is £5.00 per person (free to Friend's of the Garden and University staff and students)
