Monday 27 September 2021, 4.00pm to 4.50pm BST
Join the Head of Horticulture for a relaxed tour of the Garden to enjoy the seasonal sights, as Cambridge University Botanic Garden celebrates its 175th anniversary on its current site.
Following the tour there will be a live Q&A session with the Director, Professor Beverley Glover.
Professor Beverley Glover (Fellow of Queens' )
Beverley Glover has been Director of the Cambridge University Botanic Garden and Professor of Plant Systematics and Evolution since 2013. She is also a Fellow of Queens' College. Her research is focused on the development, function and evolution of floral features which enhance pollination success. This work is important because the enormous species diversity of the flowering plants can be attributed, at least in part, to the reproductive isolation resulting from the recruitment of animals as pollen vectors. This understanding also underpins research into security of animal-pollinated food crops, providing opportunities to support plant breeders in their efforts to optimize yields of key crops.
