Project Staff: Seed Collections Assistant
- Nat. Cert. Horticulture, 1989
I receive and assess incoming seed collections. Then I clean, x-ray, count, bank and germination test the received collections. I help organize and supervise cleaning undertaken by volunteers. If necessary I organize regenerations and harvest the relevant collections. I dispatch the associated wild-collected herbarium specimens for verification within three months to Kew. My other duties include taking cultivated herbarium specimens from the glasshouses to send to Kew.
