Congratulations Javier!

Javier passed his viva examination today – congratulations Dr Luna-Castro!

Javier studied the phylogeny, taxonomy, floral evolution and biogeographic history of Gesneriaceae and conducted a morphometric study of artificially raised hybrids between species of Streptocarpus. He also participated in RBGE’s floral morphology discussion groups. Javier also contributed greatly to rbgeColombia’s outreach program being an active and enthusiastic contributor including running his own workshops as part of The University of Edinburgh’s Innovative Learning Week (Ancient myths have more to say than western science on Amazonian sustainability?).
