Classroom Course: 'Exploring Tropical Botany' - with Dr. Ángela Cano

February 13th 2023

Join tutor Dr. Ángela Cano, Assistant Curator at Cambridge University Botanic Garden for a two-day classroom course on the many aspects of tropical plant diversity.

The course will study the history of the tropical belt, with a focus on the fossil record, which regions have the highest species richness and face the strongest threats – known as 'biodiversity hotspots'. The second part of the course will then focus on plant systematics, evolution and taxonomy, with a focus on different tropical plant groups.

Ángela studied Biology at the University of Los Andes (Bogota) graduating with a BSc degree in 2009. She did her master’s research in plant systematics and biogeography at the Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève (Geneva) from 2010 to 2012. She gained a PhD degree in 2018 from the University of Geneva.
