Palm oil under the magnifying glass

Farnon and Josie’s work on ferns in oil palm plantations was featured on the cover article of Geographical magazine this month. The article, written by the talented Chris Finch, tells an unbiased story of the palm oil industry  and its place in the modern world. Both Farnon and Josie are Fellows of the Royal Geographical Society, and have received funding from the society in the last few years. It was a pleasure and privilege for our work to be showcased in the Society’s magazine!
