Biology Week: Shades of Autumn Trail

Sat, 12/10/2013 - 9:00am - Sun, 20/10/2013 - 4:15pm
Botanic Garden

 

This was a brand new trail to explore the biology of autumn.  

What happens to plants when the the temperature drops and the days get shorter?  Why do leaves change colour?  Use your nose to find the tree that smells of toffee-apples in autumn and see the giant pumpkin and autumn produce on the vegetable beds.  Keep your eyes open for our gardeners who are as busy as ever with autumn tasks. 

The trail can be downloaded here.

Organised as part of Biology Week 2013, organised by the Society of Biology.  Find out about other Biology Week events organised here.
