Food Forever Champions
Pressed plant specimens enable Dr Tiina Sarkinen to classify the diversity of wild plants in the potato family.
The wild plants related to food crops are arguably among the most valuable to humans because the genetic diversity they hold enables us to secure our food supply in a changing world.
At the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh Dr Tiina Sarkinen is exploring the diversity of wild plants in the potato family. These include wild relatives of the global crops eggplant, tomato, potato and the less familiar black nightshades confined to parts of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
