Join George Greiff from the University’s Faculty of Life Sciences as he unveils the wonderful world of bryophytes; plants including mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. These are plant pioneers that have been ever present for 450 million years. George will provide a general overview and talk about why they are important, and of course fascinating.

Science picnics in the early evening summer Botanic Garden are a great way to hear about research in Bristol University; bring drinks and snacks and enjoy.

In the event of rain this talk will be moved indoors to our study room.
