Fall/Winter 2019 Newsletter
This issue highlights a botanical project in West Africa, funded by the Plant Exploration Fund (pages 4-5). The project involved botanists from Senegal, Switzerland, and the USA, and documented the palm diversity of Casamance, a remote region of Southern Senegal. Biogeography, conservation and ethnobotany were the focus of this scientific mission.
A large number of early-career botanists, horticulturists, and students that have moved Montgomery forward recently (13 new hires!). Generous support from donors, foundations and universities helps Montgomery reach new levels of student engagement every year (see page 7).
