MSc Biol. Alma P. Bautista Bello

Project and Resarch Interests

I am currently doing my PhD on nomadic vines aka 'secondary hemiepiphytes. I am mostly focusing on different lifeforms of plants, their physiology and how all this changes during development. My field work concentrates on Mexico, specifically in Los Tuxtlas, Veracruz. My research now is mostly about climbing Araceae and partly about some other plant families like Cyclanthaceae and Marcgraviaceae.
