Ferns and diversity hotspots

Ferns and diversity hotspots such as Madagascar, southwest China, the eastern Himalaya, and the Malay Archipelago

These projects target the process of assembling and conserving species diversity of ferns in biodiversity hotspots and other centres of biodiversity, such as Madagascar and southwest China.

The Chinese fern diversity is studied in collaboration with Professor Xian-Chun Zhang at the Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing.
