Darwin and the Art of Botany

 
 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
 £20

Charles Darwin is best known for his work on the evolution of animals, but in fact a large part of his contribution to the natural sciences is focused on plants. His observations are crucial to our modern understanding of so much about plant biology, from the amazing pollination process of orchids to plant carnivory to the way that vines climb.

Join authors James Costa and Bobbi Angell for an illustrated lecture based on their new book Darwin and the Art of Botany: Observations on the Curious World of Plants.

A celebration of Darwin's often overlooked botanical interests, the book spotlights 45 fascinating plants studied by Darwin, each illustrated with beautiful botanical art selected from the Library at the Oak Spring Garden Foundation. Participants will come away with a new appreciation of Darwin's creative botanical investigations, the plants he studied, and the ways in which he helped shape our understanding of the world around us.

Light refreshments included.
