OSSSU - Orchid Seed Science And Sustainable Use

I am currently finishing a PhD in Australia on propagation of difficult-to-grow threatened Australian orchids, based at the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria (Melbourne) and Australian National University. The Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria has a large (terrestrial) orchid conservation program headed by Noushka Reiter (https://www.rbg.vic.gov.au/) that I’ve been involved with for nearly four years as a lab-tec and PhD student. I have experience in ex-situ propagation, seed and mycorrhizal fungi collection and storage, monitoring of wild populations and undertaking reintroductions and am member of several recovery teams for threatened Australian orchids. My PhD is mostly on mycorrhizal fungi, ex-situ propagation techniques and seed viability.
