Botanic Garden Summer Lectures

 

Endemic Sorbus in the Avon Gorge, with Nick Wray

Thanks to its aspect and microclimate, the 1.5 mile long Avon Gorge is home to a unique range of plants including many that are rare or nationally scarce (autumn squill, Scilla autumnalis, rock stonecrop, Sedum fosterianum and pale St. John’s- wort Hypericum montanum) and the rare endemic whitebeams, Sorbus bristoliensis and Sorbus wilmottiana. This talk will showcase the exciting work that the Bristol Botanic Gardens are undertaking to conserve and interpret this important and biodiverse habitat.

Thursday 3rd July 2014, 6.30pm.

 

 

All lectures take place at 6.30pm at the Daubeny Lecture Theatre (at the front of the Botanic Garden) in Oxford and will last approximately an hour followed by a drinks reception in the Botanic Garden. Tickets cost £8 per lecture.
