We know that plants are important. They maintain our atmosphere, nourish other living organisms and benefit us psychologically by creating beautiful landscapes around us.

Join molecular biologist Beronda Montgomery as she explores how plants are masters of adaption and experience sensations that don’t require eyes or ears. Plants “know” what and who they are, and they use this knowledge to make their way in the world and maximise their chances of survival.

In this talk, discover how we might improve human society by better appreciating not just what plants give us, but also how they achieve their own purposes.


Dr Beronda Montgomery is MSU Foundation Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Microbiology & Molecular Genetics at Michigan State University. A Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Microbiology, she was named one of Cell’s 100 Inspiring Black Scientists in America.

Beronda's latest book, 'Lessons from Plants', is available to purchase from Amazon and all good book shops.
