Plant diversity is under unprecedented pressure: many species are under threat of extinction and this has serious and far-reaching environmental implications. Loss of diversity also diminishes the repertoire of vital and sustainable products provided by the plant kingdom, including foods, medicines, materials and fuel. This lecture will explore how science and technology can contribute to stemming plant diversity loss.


Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. 

Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
