Digitising Kew’s plant pathogen collection
Providing the evidence to study and combat the fungi of most threat to plant health in the UK.
I am responsible for curating Kew’s Fungarium collections, particularly those from outside of the British Isles; incorporating newly accessioned specimens and donated collections into the fungarium. I am also responsible for facilitating access to the collections for research purposes, and also giving tours and talks to visiting groups. I also participate in Kew’s science communications programme, focusing on fungal science.
