We have gathered in Granada for the 5th evoflor meeting to talk about present and future projects.
Within the context of the project Hidden extinctions: Losing plant diversity in Iberian arid zones as a consequence of the anthropic-mediated expansion of weeds, we sampled on 9 March 2018 individuals of the taxon Moricandia moricandioides pseudofoetida, a narrowly distributed endemism inhabiting some badlands of the Región de Murcia (SE Iberian Peninsula).
We have started a new field campaign visiting a Moricandia foetida population in the Desert of Tabernas (Almería). This campaign will develop part of the project Hidden extinctions: Losing plant diversity in Iberian arid zones as a consequence of the anthropic-mediated expansion of weedss.
This time we went south, to the Antiatlas Mountains in search for Moricandia and Erysimum.

Lucía DeSoto has been recently granted with a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship to carry out TreEsilience project. TreEsilience aims using tree rings to investigate the role of local adaptation in determining intraspecific variation in tree resilience to drought.

We have met to think about evoflor new paths, specifically to address new ways of increasing the collaboration between evoflor members and how to interact even better. Read more
