“Illuminations: Past, Present, and Future of Fern Research”

 A (Virtual) Lunchtime Lecture by Dr. Alejandra Vasco

Dr. Vasco will be speaking about the Ferns of Colombia project she is spearheading as well as “Illuminations: Past, Present, and Future of Fern Research” – a tripartite art exhibition featuring fern vouchers from Colombia and other BRIT Herbarium specimens.  This art exhibition emerged from a research-based creative collaboration between Dr. Vasco, renowned environmental artist Dornith Doherty, Herbarium Director Tiana Rehman, and Librarian Ana Niño.
