Algologies Conversation: The Hunt for British Agar in WW2

I was lucky enough to speak to Stephen Forsythe about his article British Seaweed – The Hunt for Agar in World War Two and learn more about how the rare and historic report featured in the previous post came into his possession and the story behind it. It turned into a long and rambling conversation and just goes to show how interconnected many of the subjects I am interested in are. Professor Forsythe also provide these interesting links on the production of agar, here and here.
