With only a small percentage of the planet’s diversity formally described by science, it is more important than ever to train a new generation of taxonomists who will go on to describe, understand and conserve biodiversity. The exciting new MSc programme in Plant and Fungal Taxonomy, Diversity and Conservation, delivered by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Queen Mary University of London, teaches vital plant and fungal identification skills in the context of evolutionary biology and conservation.

Join the first cohort of students as they showcase their research projects in this end of year finale. Please download the full programme here.

This meeting is free and open to all but registration is essential by Thursday 1st September 2016. Registration for this event is now CLOSED.
