Last quote by Kathy J. Willis

There are just huge areas we know nothing about. I find it really encouraging that there are many, many new plants to be found in the world. Plants are critical to life on Earth and all aspects of human wellbeing. I get most carried away with the new food crops, because I think one of the most worrying things about climate change is its impact on food security. It has got these really big coffee beans and quite happily survives in up to 40C. The traits are perfect for saying this might be a good species for future coffee.feedback
