Plant pathologist Rachel Warmington argues that we should not overlook fungi, explaining the many ways they can improve our lives, from life saving drugs to getting rid of plastics.
Rachel is the plant pathologist at Cornwall’s award-winning Eden Project, where she is responsible for detection and control of plant diseases, as well as keeping an eye on soil health. She completed a PhD at Warwick University, working on a fungal pathogen that affects more than 400 plant species, for which she was awarded the Marsh Horticultural Science Award in 2013.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
