This module will explore the role and application of plant and fungal science in integrated conservation and management of biodiversity. This includes the delivery of ecosystem services and livelihoods, and the development of mechanisms for maintenance and restoration in the context of a changing planet. Drawing on the exceptional breadth of expertise, collections and facilities across Kew's sites, and building on the fundamental understanding of plant and fungal taxonomy and diversity, the module will provide an essential introduction to a range of technical approaches. These include policy development, species and habitat prioritisation, protected area management and conservation genetics. Other approcahes such as ecosystem service research, seed banking and propagation, application of traditional knowledge, and integrated conservation for biodiversity and livelihoods will be explored.
