The 2020 State of the World’s Plants and Fungi report has been released by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Professor Tim Cavagnaro from the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine at the Waite contributed to this report.
This fourth report in the State of the World’s series combines plants and fungi for the first time. It is also the first report that is accompanied by a full volume of expert-reviewed scientific publications in the New Phytologist Foundation’s Open Access journal Plant, People, Planet.
Drawing upon the expertise of 210 contributors in 97 institutions across 42 countries, the report is an unparalleled collaborative effort which takes an in-depth look at how we can protect and sustainably use the world’s plants and fungi for the benefit of people and the planet.
Now, more than ever before, we need to explore the solutions that plants and fungi could provide to the global challenges we face.
