Plantropical: notes from a tropical botanist
Isla Ratón, Amazonas, Venezuela
Australian Cycas, genomics and drones
A new project is taking shape in collaboration with Nathalie Nagalingum. We are developing an exciting research to study population genomics of endangered Australia species Cycas. We are using cutting-edge technology both in the field and in the lab to unravel the genetic diversity of this ancient lineage of plants and provide resources that may be useful in conservation efforts. More information coming soon...
