2017 Annals of Botany Lecture - Standard Rate

2017 Annals of Botany Lecture - Standard Rate

£5.00

Description

Dr Natasha de Vere is Head of Science at the National Botanic Garden of Wales and a Senior Lecturer in Botany at the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences, Aberystwyth University.

She is a botanist with particular interest in conservation biology. The main emphasis of her research is the conservation of Wales’ biodiversity and, in a time of climate change, using Wales as a nationwide laboratory for understanding ecosystem processes.

A major success has been DNA barcoding the entire native flora of Wales – making Wales the first nation in the world to achieve this. The project has now extended to DNA barcoding the rest of the UK flora and the development of applications to use this resource for biodiversity conservation and to improve people’s lives. A key current research area is using DNA metabarcoding to understand pollinator foraging preferences.

Location:
Chemistry Lecture Theatre,
Cantocks Close,
off Woodland Rd,
Bristol
BS8 1TS

Date: 25 May 2017
Lecture begins at 7.30pm.
Parking is available in University car parks; the nearest are in University Walk and The Hawthorns, Woodland Road.
