Did you know that some plants entrap their nutrients by the use of suction? Were you aware that plants provide the basis for amelioration of conditions ranging from tropical disease, acute and chronic severe pain, to irregular heartbeat? Had you heard that many plants use biochemistry to choke other plants?
Each week this course looks at different aspects of plant biology, from basic botany and associated phenomena, to evidence-based medicinal applications and the interactions constantly occurring between plants. The final session is a Saturday ‘outdoor lab’ at the Wellington Botanic Garden.
