Laura V S Jennings
I write collecting guides for seed collectors as part of the Adapting Agriculture to Climate Change project. The project is targeting the wild relatives of 29 crop species for seed banking and the guides I produce help seed collectors find and identify the species they’re looking for. I compile information from herbarium specimens, publications and online resources to produce species descriptions, and provide images and maps. I also have an interest in the Flora of New Guinea and am a co-author on a forthcoming Kew book, a genus-level guide to the trees of New Guinea.
