Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a world-recognized author, medical biochemist, botanist and climate change visionary. She possesses a unique understanding of modern western science and ancient Celtic knowledge. Orphaned in Ireland in her youth, Beresford-Kroeger was educated by her Irish elders who instructed her in the Brehon knowledge of plants and nature.
Told at a young age that one day she would need to bring this ancient Celtic knowledge to a troubled future, Beresford-Kroeger has done exactly that.
Diana has been working to preserve the environment since the early 1960s when she identified climate change as one of the most important challenges we would face in the modern age. This set her on a course of rigorous scientific study where she achieved a masters in botany and two PHD’s – one in biochemistry and the other in biology. In 1967 she discovered genetic smearing, which changed the way scientists studied microcosms under a microscope. Diana also discovered cathodoluminescence in biological systems, which is now used to detect cancer. But because of her Celtic roots, her heart was always with the forest.
