BioSciences Seminar Series - Do plants evolve differently?

As part of the 2018 BioSciences Seminar Series, Dr Rob Lanfear will present a Big Ideas in Evolution Lecture, hosted by Dr Luke Holman.

It is often assumed that animals and plants evolve differently because animals have a segregated germ line but plants don't. Recent work, including some from Rob's lab, is now challenging this long-held view, potentially upending a century of thinking.

This lecture will run for 30 minutes, followed by Q&A and tea, coffee and networking.
