On this easy 90-minute walk we will look at the contrasts between ‘primitive’ and ‘modern’ trees; the elegance and clumsiness of tree ferns; the ‘nice’ and ‘not-so-nice’ aspects of plant chemistry; how kauri beats the competition; the biggest tree species in the world (not kauri); botanical connections with the wind-borne Wright Brothers; why pollen likes being yellow and why Ginkgo is so odd. Meet at the Founders’ Entrance (main gates) in Glenmore Street.
