Vida Svahnström, an MPG member since 2018, will be studying for an MSc at RBG Kew from autumn this year. Vida was awarded a bursary by MPG to go on the field trip to the Peloponnese in March 2019, led by John Fielding.  At that time she was a student at the University of St Andrews but graduated this month with a first class degree in evolutionary biology. Her postgraduate studies will be on plant and fungal taxonomy, diversity and conservation.
