Small grant for ATDN

This year the Amazon was the main theme of the NMBE's Museumsnacht held in March (

On this occasion researchers of the museum campaigned to raise money by selling plant fossils for a research project developed in the Amazon Basin and ATDN was chosen.

Thanks to Nelson Sanjad of Museo Goeldi, who suggested our programme, we recieved a modest sum but important because a lot of people collaborated in the campaign and many more know about our network now.

We will use the sum to contribute to test a novel way of barcoding very old and new material of Amazonian trees.
