Public lecture by Professor Dianne Edwards CBE FRS.
Dianne Edwards FRS is Distinguished Research Professor in Paleobotany at Cardiff University.
Plants changed the face of the planet – and fossils from Hay and around the world have revealed how this happened. Dianne Edwards tells the story of these ancient plants, which led to the gardens, forests and landscapes we know today.
The event is chaired by Francine Stock, BBC Radio 4 presenter and novelist.
