The Royal Society Te Aparangi has announced a nationwide lecture series hosted by its branches to demonstrate the range of research being carried out throughout New Zealand.
The lectures are part of the society’s 150th anniversary activities.
Each talk will include a presentation and video celebrating the society’s past and looking to the future, led by Professor Richard Bedford, the society’s president.
Topics range from human heat stress due to rising temperatures and humidity in response to climate change to future food and developments in pest management for pipfruit crops.
Gene editing to improve the national dairy herd is another of the topics.
Professor Bedfored describes it as “a broad and intriguing collection of research we can be proud of.”
The events are free but a donation to support branch activities would be appreciated.
