Apple of My Eye

Sunday 21 April

Sometimes loving something can have unintended consequences. Threats to the Scottish wildcat through crossbreeding with domestic moggies have been a concern for years, but wild plants face the same problems. Our love of apples could be pushing one of Scotland’s rarest native trees towards extinction. Geneticist Dr Markus Ruhsam explores the genetics of one of our most popular healthy snacks – the apple – and shares evidence that it poses a threat to the native crab apple.

Presented by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
