“My Life in Slime” – a public lecture by Sarah Lloyd OAM

This lecture will outline the life cycle of slime moulds (myxomycetes) and describe why the several completely different stages of development have confused scientists and naturalists for centuries. It will also describe the process of collecting and storing slime mould fruiting bodies and the difficulties identifying some of the 120 different species found so far in northern Tasmania.

Admission is free for members of the Royal Society of Tasmania, $6 – general admission, $4 – students, QVMAG and TMAG Friends, and members of Launceston Historical Society.
