I enjoy giving talks in the UK and abroad, on topics that range from science, to horticulture, ecology or travel. Here are a few examples of talks I have given:
- Plant hunting in the 21st century
- Using DNA to identify plants
- Insects in gardens: friends or foes?
- The fascinating world of pollens
- Plant names keep changing – should taxonomists be left to disappear?
- Conserving plants in gardens: Plant Heritage and the National Plant Collections
- Plant conservation around the world
- The wonders of plants from Malaysia/Northern Vietnam/Madeira and their uses in gardens
- Plant Collections: Bringing Another Dimension to the Landscape
- Plant records : an underestimated resource
My audiences have ranged from gardening clubs, professional landscapers, to MSc students or government staff.
My talks can be presented in English or French.
