If you were one of the participants at our recent meeting featuring Bruce Langridge’s talk on Farming and Fungi, you’ll remember Emma Williams and her useful contributions to the Q&A and discussion after the talk. Emma is one of Wales’ leading mycologists, and is currently working at the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Bruce has recorded a conversation with Emma in his series of “Flowerpot Podcasts” of conversations with people working at NBGW. In this one, Emma tells how a visit to the National Botanic Garden of Wales helped inspire her to get into fungi, how studying coal spoil fungi has changed her views on how fungi colonise new areas and how exciting new discoveries at the Botanic Garden are being recorded for future scientific study in the Garden’s Fungarium.
