Chris Jeffrey, a chemistry professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, will talk about the chemical communications between plants and other organisms, or “chemical ecology,” at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 17, at the UC Davis Arboretum. Jeffrey’s free “Science Café” talk will be given on the Wyatt Deck. In the event of rain, the group will move inside to 146 Environmental Horticulture.
Co-sponsored by professor Jared Shaw and the UCD chemistry department, the program is funded by the National Science Foundation. For more information, call 530-752-4880 or visit arboretum.ucdavis.edu.
