Propagation guide for native trees of Panamá and the Neotrópical Region


Propagation guide for native trees of Panamá and the Neotrópical Region

After more than a decade of collecting seeds and learning what it takes to make them grow, Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) has published a nursery guide for 120 tree species native to Panama and the region. The data comes from the STRI-Yale University native tree species project, PRORENA, and was complied by STRI/ELTI postdoctoral investigator Francisco Román, who is a long-standing member of the RNC Alliance. “Many of the 120 species contained in this guide are naturally distributed from Mexico to Peru and Bolivia,” says Francisco, now headed to his native Peru to develop reforestation projects as a University of Florida investigator. “I don't arrive empty-handed.”
