I admire your work immensely, and I would like to ask – What genera/species of plants did you record during your work in Afghanistan ? Can you connect me to any Flora documents for Afghanistan or any other (recent if possible) botanical references for Afghanistan ?
Why ? I am a life-long student of the flora of the mountains of Eurasia, and i need to learn more about the flora of Afghanistan. As a professional geologist, I am also fascinated in the connections between subsurface rocks, soils and plants. In particular, I am interested to introduce new species of both bulbs, corms and other plants to collectors in Western Europe and USA,
Thanks a lot
Please do NOT introduce “new species of both bulbs, corms, and other plants to collectors in Western Europe and the USA.” We have too many introduced invasive plants now. Invasive plants are destroying wildlife habitat, driving native plants into extinction, damaging streams and diminishing water supplies for wildlife and human use. Efforts to control these invasive plants (and animals) costs billions of dollars a year. You describe yourself “as a professional geologist” perhaps you should extend your education to ecology.
