A (Virtual) Lunchtime Lecture by Dr. Cristóbal Sánchez
In October we welcome Dr. Cristóbal Sánchez from Jardín Etnobotánico Francisco Peláez R. (San Andrés Cholula, Puebla, Mexico). Dr. Sánchez, a regional delegate of the Botanical Society of Mexico, will present examples of the current work of botanical exploration in Mexico by the scientific community, from fieldwork to the publication of new taxa, and the importance of herbaria and botanical gardens in this process. Dr. Sánchez will also address some changes that have occurred in the way of working with the arrival of Citizen Science Observation Platform, cybertaxonomy, and the COVID-19 pandemic. This 1-hr seminar will include a short Q&A session after the lecture.
