Just think of it: You're a plant, rooted to the ground, and some hungry animal is headed your way. How do plants "know" when they are under attack, and how do they protect themselves?

In this workshop, Loraine Washburn, PhD, RSABG Laboratory Manager and Conservation Botanist (and interpreter of the Game of Thorns exhibit) will introduce you to the many ways that plants defend themselves in the face of threats from all kingdoms of life: insects, mammals, fungi and other plants.
