The magic of slime moulds

Tue Jan 15 2019 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm

Prof. Mark Fricker (University of Oxford)

Slime moulds thrive in damp woodlands and normally spread over rotting logs, eating bacteria and fungi. They are also unusual in being single giant cells that show remarkably sophisticated behaviour considering their humble form. This talk presents a little vignette of the science behind these curious beasts.

Visitors welcome (£3 charge). Members are invited to bring exhibits and share their observations at all meetings.
