Dr Vicki Bonham


Content Editor, Plant Sciences

My background is in plant sciences with a BSc in botany and PhD in plant molecular biology. I spent 6 years working as a research fellow at the University of Reading on projects varying from searching for the ultimate birch tree (anatomically speaking) to making biodegradable
packaging from bananas

I arrived at CABI in 2005 where I set to work on the Aquaculture Compendium – a multimedia encyclopaedia for farmers of all things aquatic!. I now work in the Plant Sciences content team where I
write blogs, help maintain the CAB Abstracts database and collect material for
AgBiotechNet. Oh yes, I’m also editor of the infamous Potato Abstracts as seen
on the BBC’s “Have I Got News For You”.
