More exciting work from the Gallo lab! Been a fantastic collaboration:

Day 4 - #BotanizingWhileBlack
Collecting plants for projects is one of my favourite activities as getting out into the field (being in nature) rejuvenates the soul, sparking creativity
-Diverse Communities Are Strong Communities-
Seasoned #Botanist, immediate former HoD & the only #Bryologist at EA, Dr. Malombe, has excelled in both worlds including description new #species in each. e.g. #Dyschoriste keniensis #Cheilolejeunea fischeri. There's so much to say about him! #BlackBotanistsWeek @KewAfrica
Friends don't let friends wear a mask with an exhalation valve!
Not at work. Not at the store. The valves don't have filters. They just let your moist air drift out around you. Now you know.

You don't need a PhD to be a botanist! Jane ('Nellie') Datcher was the first African American woman to receive an advanced degree from Cornell, in 1890. She handwrote her thesis on Hepatica (spring beauty). #WomeninStem #BlackBotanicalLegacy #BlackbotanistsWeek
Hello! My name is Miyauna and I’m a undergrad majoring in Environmental Conservation. Although I am usually more on the bee-side, I am super interested in plant-insect interactions! I currently am part of a plant ecology lab and am excited to learn more!🌺🐝#BlackBotanistsWeek
Happy Day2 of #BlackBotanistsWeek!! During my MS at Tulane University, I studied bald cypress tree endophytes! Endophytes are microbes (bacteria/fungi) found inside plants, and they aid in many functions like plant growth and disease resistance #PlantInteractions
#BlackBotanistsWeek , Yay.
I am a PhD student from Madagascar, currently in research stay at @FuncAgroEco University of Göttingen.
I study plants biodiversity within vanilla landscapes in Madagascar, part of @Diversity_Turn project.
S/O to #BlackBotanistsWeek!
I'm Lorenzo, a PhD student studying beneficial plant-microbe interactions in the root system. The best part of my research is I really think about how plants work with both fungi & bacteria to benefit all parties! 1/4
Hi there, my name is Aviwe Matiwane aka the Plant Detective.🕵️🏵️🌿
I work on both extant ( Forest ecology) and extinct (Palaeobotany). My grandfather is a self taught botanist.

Hiii 👋🏾 I’m Taylor, a PhD student studying plant-microbe interactions. I’m a plant lover—yet I like to infect plants w/ bad bacteria🦠🤔 The interplay between plants and their pathogens is super interesting! #BlackBotanistsWeek
I am loving #blackbotanistsweek!! It's great to see everyone! I am an Associate Professor @NCState_PMB. My lab focuses on iron homeostasis in plants - how do plants extract iron and other nutrients from soil and use them? Plant-soil interactions count today, right?
It's #BlackBotanistsWeek! I'm a plant ecophysiologist, PhD in training and a Science Educator at a forest. I study how trees respond to climate change physiologically! If trees can't adapt or migrate, they could become locally extinct! #botany101 #blackroots #blackbotanicallegacy
My name is Denisha Anand and I'm a #BlackBotanist
I manage a 109ha unfenced wetland system in Cape Town as biodiversity manager, focusing on the rehabilitation of indigenous vegetation on site.
BSc hons plant physiology.
MA (current) plant human intimacies.
We are following #BlackBotanistsWeek and you should too! So many great stories and new connections! #ethnobotany #botany
Day 2 of #BlackBotanistsWeek is #PlantInteractions! Plants can get diseases from pathogens, just like us. When you have get plants/crops that get sick and die, there's less food to go around, leading to higher prices in stores! An example of this is a disease on citrus. 1/5
More than ever I want to ask you to wear a face mask. #COVID19 cases are spiking in many states including GA and I am afraid that hospitals will be overwhelmed. Believe me, you DON’T want to get infected. Don’t be fooled, this is not a mild illness for many. #WearADamnMask
Grasses need love too, #plantlove is not always about trees.... While important, trees are not always the right answer as Cedrique's work in Madagascar shows https://t.co/Gvc3uDFeQe
Certainly one of my favourites. In this study we show that plants from different populations have varied medicinal properties

The Implication of Chemotypic Variation on the Anti-Oxidant and Anti-Cancer Activities of Sutherlandia frutescens (L.) R.Br. (Fabaceae) from Different Geographic Locations

Woopwoop!🎉A little delayed for the #BlackBotanistsWeek but here I am!👩🏾🔬I study how plants can survive without water🌱💧➡️#desiccationtolerance. This is found in many seeds and a few plants called #resurrectionplants.*the 2nd pic is an @home experimentation🤓orchid pollination.
Good looking out @themorgantrail ! One of our oddest looking parasitic plants is Hydnora africana, here seen in front of its Euphorbia host. https://t.co/5SC2chYcum

One of my big passions is outreach to those who might be interested in plant science/botany but don't have the tools (or even access to the tools) to make it happen. #BlackBotanistsWeek #BlackBotanicalLegacy #Botany101
The @mobotgarden has several Victoria water lilies (Victoria amazonica) on display. While they may look innocent on top, they're full of prickles underneath - leaves, stems and flowers! Trust me when I say they are painful to handle! #Botany101 #BlackBotanistsWeek
