A 360-page book by a group of Central American botanists, co-authored by STRI's Carla Chizmar Fernández in Panama under the coordination and edition of Profesora Mireya Correa (STRI and the University of Panama), was just published thanks to the project "Developing capabilities and sharing technology for biodiversity conservation in Central America". The project is a product of the work of the Norwegian government and Costa Rican National Institute for Biodiversity (InBio) with other institutions in the region. This effort aims at integrating knowledge on plants and socioeconomic development processes in Central America.
The books will be donated (not sold) by the Central American herbaria to libraries, research centers, etc. In Panama, Mireya Correa is in charge of the book distribution, already in process.
