What is the current conservation status of plant biodiversity in the desert, Andean and forest ecosystems of Chile?

Investigador Responsable Dr. Mary T. Kalin

The main aim of this research area is to understand how climatic variation has affected the reproductive processes of plants in areas that have so far received limited study and exploration. In order to accurately identify locations in need of conservation effort, we carry out field work, compile and utilize evidence from longitudinal databases, and analyze the areas where there are gaps in the data.
