About the event

Who doesn’t love the spring bloom? Winter is over and temperatures are increasing. But did you know that many plants won’t flower until they have been exposed to the prolonged cold of winter? Caroline Dean will explore how plants monitor seasons and how their molecular memory systems, similar to those in our own bodies, help plants sense fluctuating winter temperatures and judge when winter is over.
