Guest Speaker: Judy Rutter

Topic: Botanical Nomenclature

For our first meeting of the year, we return to the John Taylor Room at the Kilmore Library, where Dr Judy Rutter will be giving a presentation on Botanical Nomenclature.

Judy is a long time member of APS Mitchell, has a background in science, botany, biology and teaching.  Her talk will cover the basic rules for naming of Australian Plants using the binomial system. She hopes that attendees can bring along some specimens from their gardens, to see if we can work out the correct names from the information given in the talk.  Please bring some species you know the specific name of and some you that you don’t.

Entry is $2 (to help us cover room rental costs) which includes supper & a ticket in the evening door prize plant raffle draw.
