Leicester Lit & Phil Natural History Section - Are there any saprophytes in the British flora?
The origin and evolution of carbon-acquisition through non-photosynthetic means - online via Zoom
The nature of saprophytism and the applicability of the term to plants in the British flora will be discussed by Dr Richard Gornall, Director of the University of Leicester Botanic Garden. Two native plant species, both newly discovered in Leicestershire, are highlighted, and are used to illustrate the origin and evolution of carbon-acquisition through non-photosynthetic means. Join us online from 7pm for 7.30 - refreshments served from 7pm!
