Tuesday, May 17 from 8:30am-5:00pm.

This inspirational seminar will deliver the vision, knowledge and wisdom of four great thinkers. Their brilliance lies in combining fastidious research with artistic sensibility: communicating from the frontiers of their disciplines. Respectively, these scientists are challenging old paradigms. Collectively, by breaking the boundaries between science and art, they offer a powerful insight into natural processes that could change the way we understand, preserve and manage trees.

Speakers: Stefano Mancuso (plant neurobiologist and author of Brilliant Green: The Surprising History and Science of Plant Intelligence), Francis Halle (botanist and plant morphologist), Monica Gagliano (plant cognitive ecologist), Howard Thomas (plant gerontologist). More details here.
