ASSESSMENT OF EXTINCTION RISKS IN THE BIGNONIEAE


Seema Sheth, a summer intern with CCSD in collaboration with the International Center for Tropical Ecology, used IUCN Red List categories to evaluate species in the tribe Bignonieae in order to identify the ones that are under the highest degree of threat and should therefore be a priority for conservation. Identification of these species will further allow for the identification of areas of species richness that should receive conservation attention. Dr. Lúcia Lohmann-Bignoniaceae specialist, Associate Professor at the University of São Paulo, and adjunct research fellow of CCSD-is an advisor to this project.
