From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Australian Botanical Liaison Officer is a secondment position, held for up to twelve months by an Australian botanist (or expert in Australian botany) at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, London, England in the United Kingdom. The position was created in 1937, and the first ABLO was Charles Gardner. Travel and living costs for the position are currently funded by the Australian government, with the appointee's salary continuing to be paid by their current employing institution.

The position is advertised by the Australian Biological Resources Study (ABRS), part of the Australian government's Department of the Environment and Heritage. Assessment and selection of candidates is undertaken by the Council of Heads of Australian Herbaria (CHAH), who advise the Australian Biological Resources Study Advisory Committee (ABRSAC) to recommend the Minister approve the appointment.
