Lichens in northeast England.Talk by Dr Janet Simkin

Friday 15 January, 7pm-8pm
Great North Museum: Hancock

The study of lichens has a long history in the North East, starting with Winch in the 18th century. This talk will introduce us to some remarkable characters, and will also consider how the lichen flora of the area has changed over the years. Rarely seen herbarium specimens, books and archive material from the natural history society’s collections will be on display. This is a joint event with the British Lichen Society
