CE&DU3A Members' Talk: The Seedy Side of Life – Mike Black

About this Event

A TALK FOR MEMBERS OF CROUCH END & DISTRICT U3A

Seeds are enormously important in plant ecology, agriculture and horticulture so the study of their development, structure, composition, biochemistry, and molecular biology has attracted much scientific attention, including my own. But in addition to the science, seeds feature in many other aspects of human affairs – mythology, history, arts and crafts, toxicology, metrology, ritual practices and terrorism – that I will examine in this talk and which might be an eye-opener to many of you.

Mike is Emeritus Professor of Plant Physiology, King’s College, London where one of his major research interests was the physiology and biochemistry of seeds, eg.their development, germination and longevity. He has published much research on these topics and is Senior Editor of The Encyclopedia of Seeds: Science, Technology and Uses.
