About the Author

Fanny Karouta-Manasse has a university degree in plant biology and a PhD in marine ecology, both from Montpellier University in France. She also studied macroalgae species at the Rijksherbarium, University of Leiden in the Netherlands. In 2009, Fanny joined the Friends of the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra and volunteers at the National Seed Bank, combining her passions for nature and photography.
