October 27: Botanical Fossils – Dr Linda Falkner
27 October @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$5
Who would have thought that pollen can help solve crimes or tell about climate change?
Guest speak Linda Falkner is sure to surprise as we learn about pollen, spores, fungal material and a variety of microscopic marine organisms amongst other little beasties and their myriad of applications.
The focus of Friday Environment Forum on October 27 is the science of Palynology. The application of this science is almost as diverse as the pollen themselves.
Linda will show the vast array of pollen and spores and their biological links, as well as explain the various uses of both living and fossil pollen. These include, but are not limited to, climate change, forensic science, geological studies and bees.
Everyone is welcome at the NPA Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available at 10-10.25am. Free admission for NPA members. Non-members- $5 by “tap & go” at the door. Morning tea/coffee is included.
Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
