> Hello everyone,
> I am Claudia Baider, Brazilian-born working in Mauritius for over 15 years.
> I am currently in charge of The Mauritius Herbarium. My main research
> interest is in the conservation of biodiversity in tropical terrestrial
> systems focusing on the Amazon, the Atlantic forests and, more recently,
> the Mascarenes (located within the Madagascar and SW Indian Ocean
> Biodiversity hotspot) where I investigate the impact of invasive alien
> species on its biodiversity. I am also interested in restoration ecology
> and taxonomy of Mascarene flowering plants.
> Over the last decade, The Mauritius Herbarium has databased and barcoded
> most of its collections. Our aim now is to apply international standards
> for making data available on our website, and in a regional and global
> portals. We are also working with a local NGO that is is spearheading a
> project on organic farming that wishes to make the results of this project
> available local and internationally. We received a BID-AFRICA 2017 grant
> (BID-AF2017-0316-SMA) for the project 'Getting the plants to all:
> dissemination of information from the collection of The Mauritius
> Herbarium" (https://www.gbif.org/project/aRCxBBF1BYU2C0us62ea4/getting-
> the-plants-to-all-dissemination-of-information-from-the-collection-of-the-
> mauritius-herbarium).
> With my best wishes, Claudia
