Cuba Map

Carlos is a professor at the University of Havana and a botanist for the National Botanical Garden. His research is focused on the ferns and lycophytes of Cuba and their conservation.

He spent several weeks this summer at the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden where he reviewed and identified an impressive 720 herbarium specimens, including two new species for the Flora of Cuba. He also gave several talks to Bay Area plant societies and to UCBG.

He looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for the flora of Cuba with you on this fascinating trip!
