“If there’s one thing that really gets my goat, it’s a taxon which has been incorrectly lumped”
Who is Susanna?
Susanna is involved in the international plant taxonomic community. In her research she combines datasets from both genetic and morphological origins. She also has a strong interest in the historical development of plant taxonomy.
What does the future hold for her?
Susanna hopes to deliver new insights to the international taxonomic community, by producing a taxonomic revision of the wild roses of Europe and by linking this revision to historical context.
How does Susanna see her work/study in the longer term?
Susanna wants to integrate historical written sources in her scientific work. Using the current biodiversity repositories this aim is not trivial but she expects to gain new and interesting insights from this integration. She proposes to gather information from sources that are not traditionally used by scientists.
How does Susanna use technology?
Susanna combines and compares material from various and verified sources. The enriched compound objects which she finds via the LinBi enrichment platform adds significant value to her research projects.
