Darwin Plus 183: Biodiversity metrics for conservation management in the British Virgin Islands

Look out for the NPTVI team on Virgin Gorda over the next two weeks as we are working with the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and colleagues from the University of Puerto Rico on a new UK Darwin Plus funded project to identify the DNA and take herbarium vouchers for every plant species known in the BVI! If you see us please come and see what we are doing! This three year project will take us all over the BVI.
