Sue Eden

Dr Sue Eden studied botany and then gained a PhD in plant taxonomy. She joined the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, where she studied marine algae and uncovered their role in mud accretion on salt marshes. After marriage to a veterinary surgeon she was side-tracked by finding dormice in their Dorset garden. She wanted to know what supposedly rare animals were doing far from any habitat that the literature said they required.
