Visits to Kew and Edinburgh

KewKaty Roucoux and Ian Lawson visited the pollen labs at Kew and Edinburgh in a quest for reference material to help pin down some of the pollen identifications from core QT-2010-1. The team has already compiled a substantial electronic database of pollen morphotypes and the LTFD reference collection is growing. Katy and Ian also discussed possible collaboration with colleagues at Kew on improving our understanding of the taxonomy of certain pollen types, especially the palms.
