Dr Peter Thomas talk

Dr Peter Thomas was invited to give a plenary talk in June on 'The future of yew (Taxus baccata) in Europe', at a conference to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Institute. Dr Thomas also developed a research link with the Institute of Dendrology in Kórnik in Poland. This has resulted in two publications this year:
