Why are Plants Smelly?
Ever sniffed a plant, whether nice or nasty and wondered: why do plants smell? Well, wonder no more, we have just the thing for you – our “why are plants smelly” British Science Week event. Total immersion in smelly plants, both sweet and stinky, scratching and sniffing them, discussing the chemical basis of the aromas, their roles in plant defence and pollination, and the human dimensions: food, medicines and health. Join us for a botanical aromatic extravaganza for all the family!
An event for British Science Week 2019 and part of the University’s Botany@50 events.
