Dr Peter Mortimer, Associate Professor in the Soil Biology Group at the Kunming Institute of Botany, visited FABI last week on the invitation of FABI Director, Prof Mike Wingfield. Dr Mortimer is part of the Centre for Mountain Ecosystem Studies, a division of the World Agroforestry Centre: East and Central Asia Region.
He met with Prof. Mike Wingfield and several other members of the FABI management team, and was taken on a tour of FABI facilities on the main campus and experiential farm. The purpose of the visit was to explore areas of common research interest and possible future collaborations between FABI and the group in Kunming.
