I am a researcher at CIRAD (France), working mainly on banana. I began as an agronomist some thirty+ years ago, working on technical paths for plantain production in Africa. I am a specialist of banana genetic resources and breeding. I have managed several genetic improvement programs, and used to curate various ex situ collections in Cameroon and Guadeloupe (FWI). I am also developing information systems for genetic resources data management. If you are interested in Banana Biodiversity and are posting observations, you may also want to add them to our Mapping project: http://bit.ly/MusaDivMapping.

I began to write some words about banana classification and naming bananas. But the text length rapidly went out of control since there are a lot of things to say. I have published it as a note in my journal. Please read it here: http://bit.ly/MusaNaming
