Plants too are silent witnesses to crimes.

Their presence in many crime scenes can help an investigator identify a suspect or locate a victim.

Forensic botanist Dr Mark Spencer, will share how apparently mundane plants such as brambles and nettles can provide valuable insights into when a crime was committed or place a suspect at a scene.

Plantlife’s Dr Rachel Murphy will talk about other ways in which botanical records can be used for good.


At the end of the talk there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

We really hope you can join us for this talk. The talk will be recorded and a link to the recording will be sent to all those who register to attend the event.
