Laura Skates: Carnivorous Plants – this Thursday’s meeting
Laura Skates has just handed in her PhD thesis after three years of research into carnivorous plants. Over those 3 years, she has come to understand WA’s significant diversity of plants that eat insects and, at the Busselton Naturalists Club meeting this coming Thursday November 12, Laura will outline the diversity and biology of this special group of plants.
Ranging from the Albany Pitcher Plant through to the many species of sundews (Drosera), carnivorous plants cover a wide range of soil types and are found in a wide range of different vegetation ecosystems.
The Club meeting will be held at the Busselton Senior Citizens Centre, 22 Peel Terrace, Busselton, starting at 7.30pm.
The meeting is open to the public and is free of charge, although a gold coin donation to cover meeting hall hire costs will be appreciated.
