Most literate people in the Western World recognize Beatrix Potter as the creator of Peter Rabbit, Flopsy, Mopsie, Cottontail, and Mr McGregor. What is less well known is that she was an inspired mycologist. Although she was not formally trained ( she was rejected as a student at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew because she was a female ) she was among the first to suggest that lichens are not a single organism but rather consist of fingi and algae in a symbiotic relationship.
