Lab/field week trip to the Eden Project
The Tropical biome
Carica papaya (paw paw)
First year Biological Sciences and Environmental Biology students managed to miss the showers during lab/field week at the Eden Project. We spent the morning trying to find particular plants in the two biomes (with limited success!), and then the afternoon having a go at some scientific drawing, and exploring the environmental sustainability exhibits in the Core building. A good day out as usual - every time I go there I spot a plant I've heard of but never seen before.
