Botany news

January 2010

Earlier this year I wrote that Dr William Purvis, one of our lichen experts, was planning a visit to Signy Island to evaluate lichen biodiversity in the Antarctic.

He’s just arrived back in the UK to begin working on the specimens and data he collected, but you can still read his fascinating account of his travels on his blog, Discovering Antarctic Lichens.
