Unlocking the secrets of the natural form, plant intelligence and the ageing process
Venue: Jodrell Laboratory Lecture Theatre, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Date: 17th May 2016
This inspirational seminar delivered the vision, knowledge and wisdom of four great thinkers. Their brilliance lies in combining fastidious research with artistic sensibility: communicating from the frontiers of their disciplines.
Respectively, these scientists are challenging old paradigms. Collectively, by breaking the boundaries between science and art, they offer a powerful insight into natural processes that could change the way we understand, preserve and manage trees.
