Paleobotany of Madeira Island
My interest in horticulture and botany started at the tender age of 6 but as my knowledge expanded, I became increasingly fascinated by the plant kingdom, the peculiar lifestyles that many plants undertake in their native habitats and the amazing reproductive strategies they employ to survive. My main interests are the order Zingiberales, the families Bromeliaceae, Rubiaceae, Passifloraceae, neotropical Orchidaceae, carnivorous plants, South African geophytes, Vireya Rhododendron and island flora. Currently I' m working at Kew, aiming to improve my botanical knowledge and horticulture skills and learning new insights related to plant taxonomy and phytopathology. In addition, I'm also highly concerned about all issues regarding plant conservation and habitat recovery.
