In humans, the sense of smell takes a back seat to our vision, yet throughout both plants and animals, odours supply vital information.  This talk will take a plant-centric look at odours -- how, when, where and why they are produced.  We will also test our own sense of smell, so be prepared to close your eyes and let your nose take over!

You are kindly requested to not wear perfumes and colognes to this event.
