Depending on the objectives of the planned study, image requirements may vary. However and precisely to ensure that any analysis is possible, all the banana natural biodiversity that can be recorded is interesting. For instance, niche modelling relies on large samples of accessions belonging to the same subspecies/subgroup, whatever the region of the world they are growing in, and provided it is natural. We will then preferably focus here on common triploid bananas, not rare specimens where we are likely to obtain less occurrences. However, if a sufficient number of observations is available, some more unusual specimens may also be recorded for that purpose. On the other hand, observing rare specimens will have great value to have an idea of the distribution of crop wild relatives and landraces. All types of banana are then welcome! The main problem here will be the correct botanical identification of the plant. Hence, taking detailed pictures (see below) is most ...more ↓

The objectives of this project are:

• to bring elements to understand and decipher the history of the diffusion of Musa, for instance its diffusion to Africa from SE Asia,
• to obtain a precise picture of the natural geographical diversity of Musa to foresee the evolution of cultivating areas in connection with expected climate changes and to identify collecting gaps, endangered ...more ↓
