A talk by the 2007 Allan Mere recipient Dr Peter Johnson. A celebration of the award will follow the talk. The Allan Mere was gifted by Dr Lucy Moore in 1982 to commemorate the botanist Dr HH Allan, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of his birth. The mere is made from pounamu. As the 2007 recipient of the Allan Mere award, and as a resident of Te Wai pounamu, I shall use this as a theme, linked with a 'mere' of my own creation, to describe some of the merry places and marvellous plants of my botanical wandering and wondering. At the Zoology Benham Building, 346 Great King Street, behind the Zoology car park by the Captain Cook Hotel. Use the main entrance of the Benham Building to get in and go to the Benham Seminar Room, Rm. 215, 2nd floor. Please be prompt as we have to hold the door open. Dinner will follow this talk, at a restaurant to be decided. If you would like to go to dinner, email Robyn Bridges by 12 November 2007.
