AGM & Talk – Taxonomy, Teeth and the Titanic
How does beach combing in Cornwall link to the rainforests of South East Asia and what have teeth, golf balls and the titanic got in common? Dr Peter Wilkie, will talk about his taxonomic and conservation research on the tropical tree family Sapotaceae and the impact the family has had on world history. By the end of the talk you might be amazed you had never heard of Sapotaceae before!
Dr Peter Wilkie’s research has been supported by the Small Projects Fund.
Followed by afternoon tea.
