Once Upon A Poem

10 Aug 2021
Humble duckweed flat and unseen, doubling, doubling, doubling,

Some fine poets have graced the shores of Ireland and here on the Brainwaves Project we are excited about this poem on Duckweed by our PI Professor Marcel Jansen.

Reflecting on his experience of working with this miracle plant Duckweed (Lemna minor) over the course of his career, he has created a wonderful short poem on the benefits of the humble duckweed plant.
