Daniel Philippe Matton will meet visitors of Space for Life on August 18th as part of a series of public events bringing together researchers and the public. Daniel Philippe Matton is a researcher at the Institut de recherche en biologie végétale de l’Université de Montréal and a member of the Centre SÈVE.

 “More than just reproductive organs, grains of pollen are remarkable living sculptures. Seen through the microscope, they make many people think of jewels, or perhaps candies. This Thursday, Daniel opens up his laboratory so that you can rediscover the beauty of flowers.”

Time: 1 :30 – 3 :00

This "Frontiers in Plant Science Research Topic" is a compilation of seven key publications in the field of the application of X-ray computed tomography (CT) scanning in plant sciences, as well as an editorial. A CT scanner can scan a living plant to obtain a 3-D digital model and thus analyze the spatial organization of branches, leaf canopy and root system.
