Field Visit of CRC990-EFForTS: Sub-project B-03 “Plant Genetic Diversity in Different Transformation System” (14-17 October 2012)

Researchers of SP B03 inside National Park Bukit Duabelas (Jambi)

A field visit organized by the group of researchers in SP B03 was made on 14-17 October 2012. The members of the group joining the field visit were Prof. Reiner Finkeldey (UGOE), Prof. Iskandar Z Siregar (IPB), Dr. Sri Rahayu (Bogor Botanical Garden), Dr. Hamzah (Jambi University) and Ms. Natalie Breidenbach (PhD student UGOE). Objectives of the visit were: i) to observe details of the plot conditions (total plots (n)=32 plots) and ii) to discuss the technical matters relating to the sampling works of plant materials in the field. Identification of diverse plant species found in the plots, i.e. forests, rubber jungle, rubber plantation and oil palm plantation, was discussed intensively. Thanks to Ms. Natalie Breidenbach and her field assistant Mr. Bayu for arranging very efficient field visit schedule(@izs).
