Protecting Myanmar's rich plant biodiversity is major goal of new NYBG program
Date:6/10/2014

koff Curator of Amazonian Botany, who will lead the Myanmar program. "Myanmar is the extreme case of a flora that is almost completely unknown, but because the country is opening up after a long period of isolation, it doesn't make sense to do just botanical exploration."

Dr. Daly has three decades of experience working in the world's tropical forests. He specializes in the ecologically important Burseraceae (frankincense and myrrh family) and has focused much of his work in Acre, where he has cataloged the flora and studied non-timber forest products to help diversify the regional forest economy. He is currently supporting scientists in Vietnam, Madagascar, and Brazil in documenting and protecting their plant diversity.

Joining him in the Myanmar program are Charles M. Peters, Ph.D., Kate E. Tode Curator of Botany in the Garden's Institute of Economic Botany, and Kate Armstrong, Ph.D., a Garden postdoctoral fellow.

Dr. Peters, a forester and plant ecologist, is a leading authority on the sustainable management of tropical forests, particularly through community management methods. His protocol for the sustainable use of tropical forest resources has been implemented in more than 30 conservation projects worldwide. He has led community forestry projects in Myanmar since 2005.

Dr. Armstrong, whose research focuses on the flora of Southeast Asia, has worked extensively on similar projects in this region, most notably in Laos, where she trained local botanists in field and herbarium techniques, conducted botanical inventories, and contributed to a checklist of the country's plants.
