ERASMUS + visits: Dr. Lova Marline and Pr. Terry Hedderson

From January 19th and February 2nd 2020, we hosted Dr. Lova Marline and Pr. Terry Hedderson from the University of Cape Town for combined training and teaching ERASMUS + mobilities.

The training they benefited was delivered by Dr. Denis Fabre from the UMR AGAP on photosynthesis and the use of the LICOR 6800 with bryophytes at the Plant Protection Pole in Saint-Pierre, Cirad.

The second week, along with Terry Hedderson and Lova Marline, we provided a training on the field (cloud forest and lowland forest) and in the lab on tropical bryology, hosted at the IUT of St-Pierre. The training was followed by graduate students and trained professional botanists from the Botanical Conservatory of Mascarin, including a delegation from Mayotte.

This training was organized in the framework of the SINP974 bryophytes, with the aim of training in collecting and identifying tropical bryophytes.
