Verification, specimen curation, species name curation

I verify and curate voucher specimens for the Millennium Seed Bank. I carry out name curation on the species lists generated by the MSB Partnerships. I also give training and lectures on MSB activities. My role directly contributes to one of Kew’s science strategic outputs - to bank seed from 25% of the world's plant species by 2020.
