Friday, November 11, 2011

Between October 30 and November 11, Harold Suárez from the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), Cali (Colombia) will be visiting us. For the last five years Harold has been working at the Biotechnology Unit of CIAT where he has been involved in several projects with oil palm, fodder grasses and legumes. He has an interest in plant molecular systematics and during his visit he learned about our unique palm collections and also interacted with our colleagues from FIU, USDA, and Montgomery Botanical Center. He was hosted by our Dr. Javier Francisco-Ortega.
