Dame Caroline Dean: Sensing and Remembering Winter
Part of Biology Day
The glory of spring is something we all take for granted, but have you ever wondered why plants know it’s time to bloom?
You can find out from Dame Caroline Dean, a pioneering plant science expert from the John Innes Centre, in Norwich.
Plants monitor temperature and light signals in their environment, to judge when best to grow and develop. The long-term cold exposure of winter synchronizes flowering in spring and this process is called vernalization.
This fascinating talk explores how plant cells remember temperature exposure, using memory mechanisms similar to those in our own bodies, and how plants know when winter is over.
