Leading botanists to speak at Garden Museum

One of South Africa's leading botanists, Prof. Braam van Wyk, is set to give a talk on South Africa's Highveld Grasslands at the Garden Museum, London in September.

Prof. Braam van Wyk will be joined by the University of Sheffield’s Professor James Hitchmough, who currently specialises in the management of rich naturalistic herbaceous plant communities in urban greenspaces.

Braam is set to discuss the survival strategies of plants within South Africa, based on his research as a professor at the University of Pretoria.

He has written several books and articles including ‘Field Guide to the Wild Flowers of the Highveld’, and is widely considered the world authority on plants from this area.

The event will take place at 7pm on Tuesday, 28 September.  Tickets cost £20/£15 (Museum Friends) and can be obtained by calling 020 7401 8865 or online via braamvanwyk.eventbrite.com.
