Botany and conservation

Research revolves mainly around floristics, vegetation and environmental conservation, both terrestrial and marine, in the Maltese Islands and other parts of the Mediterranean area. 

Projects include characterisation of endemic species, updating the flora of the Maltese islands and vegetation assessment. More specific research projects in collaboration with research students include the ecology and phenology of Posidonia meadows, Cystoseira forests, Caulerpa stands, coralline algal assemblages, assessment of impact by alien species, charactreisation of the vegetation of several specific sites, including several Maltese widien, saline marshes, coastal dunes, mainly with a view to identifying threats and suggesting remedies. Similar studies have also been carried out in Tunisia and Morocco. In collaboration with other experts, projects involving the protection of rare species by micro-propagation and other in vitro methods have also been initiated.
