Winter talk – Mountain flowers – how they survive up there

2nd March 2022
led by
Alan Walker

This slide presentation will use examples from Alan’s collection of photographs and knowledge gained from many visits to mountains of Britain, European Alps and East Africa to describe constraints that flowering plants have on mountains and how they adapt successfully. Mountains are popular with botanists because within a day’s walk up slope a wide range of environments is encountered and plant adaptations here are varied and intriguing. The talk will be held over Zoom with bookings taken via Ticket Tailor.
