Science talk at Sydney's Royal Botanic Garden

Friday, 29 November, 2013

The Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust is hosting a talk on plant conservation at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney on 9 December.

The hosts claim that visitors to the gardens are delighted by the fascinating plants and beautiful landscapes that greet them as they wander through the Trust’s Living Collections. What they don’t often see are the vibrant and extensive research programs and projects across a broad range of topics.

With the opening of The Australian PlantBank at The Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan, the trust’s science facilities, collections and research programs are said to rank with the best botanic gardens and plant science institutes worldwide. Dr Brett Summerell, acting executive director, will highlight some of the research happening at the gardens and the positive impact this is having on plant conservation in Australia and internationally.

The talk will be held from 12 noon to 1.30 pm and refreshments will be provided. Bookings can be made online or by phoning the Office of Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens on 02 9231 8182.
