Specialisms

Lichenised Fungi and Algae, Myxogastria (slime moulds), bioindication, collections management, ecology, lichen conservation, taxonomy, taxonomy and biogeography of aquatic and subaquatic lichens

Summary

My research interests are focussed on the ecology and evolution of amphibious lichens, bioindication and the conservation of lichenised fungi and their associated algae. My curatorial work covers the management and development of one of the world’s largest collections of lichens, lichenicolous fungi (species parasiting on lichens) and slime moulds (Myxogastria) with a total of approx. 450,000 specimens. A small number of non-lichenised fungi and the possibly earliest scientifically accurate collection of models of fungi by J.Sowerby are also curated in my section. I am coordinating a project to enhance conservation and access to our non-incorporated collections (backlogs) across the Botanical Collections Team. This includes the development of a database with batch-level descriptions of all collections and the stabilisation of material at risk from deterioration.
