Come along for an hour of delight, intrigue, and awe with Terry Huang (Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh) as he delves deep into the private sex lives of plants. Alluring suitors with a pungent rotten odor, promising nectar for the exchange of goods, or going at it alone. These are the sights and smells of courtship and consummation in the botanical world. From mutualistic partnerships to deceit-filled ones that would rival the most twisted romance, these vivid pollination stories will reveal the ingenious ways flowers have gone about dealing with one of life’s (most) important needs. Sex.
