Do you like to eat, drink, wear clothes, have medicines, and breathe oxygen? If so, thank plants!

Listen as Keith Duncan from the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center describes how to use X-rays to study plants so we can grow more of them on less land, with less water and fewer pesticides or  fertilizers.

Visit the Danforth Plant Science Center Blog to see the images and animations mentioned in the talk.

This is a recording of the talk X-Ray Imaging in Plant Biology: Seeing the Unseen held at the Alberta Rose Theatre in August 2019.
