Jonathan takes us on a botanical adventure, in which science, geography, history and folklore are intertwined and brought to life through surprising stories of plants and their curious relationships with humans.
After the lecture, the Younger Members Committee will be hosting an informal get together in our Virtual Map Room on Zoom. All Fellows and members are welcome to attend, it will be a great opportunity to meet others and discuss the themes of the lecture.
Current coronavirus restrictions mean we will not be able to admit an audience to the Ondaatje Theatre to watch our Monday night lectures in person this term. However, all of the lectures will be live streamed and we will let you know when we are able to host a physical audience again.
This lecture will be streamed online here. You will need to log into the website to view the content. You can pause and rewind the content, as well as watch at a later time.
There will be an opportunity for you to ask questions to the speaker throughout the event, until 7.45pm.
Monday night lectures are open to Fellows and members, and are included in the cost of membership.
