Seed banking and germination testing.

I assist in the initial receipt and assessment of incoming seed bank collections, followed by the cleaning, x-raying, counting, banking and germination testing of the received collections. I also undertake research into seed dormancy issues and germination testing for a variety of collections. I help supervise volunteers when necessary and train visitors and new staff as required. I also deliver training overseas.
