My expertise / skills : I am part of interdisciplinary groups of National Botanical Gardens of Turkey (TAGEM -Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Agriculture and Forestry General Directorate of Agricultural Research and Policies) focused mainly on plant biodiversity and conservation. Our team includes molecular biologist, biologist, botanist, ecologist, taxonomist, landscape architecture and agriculture engineers. We are interested to join a Project concerning climate change, plant biodiversity, forest ecology, plant anatomy, palynology,plant genetic, phytochemistry, plant biochemistry, climate change projection, model outputs and conservation plans.
I have extensively studied on forest and genetic diversity. Experiences in many National Projects including maple, poplar and willow species. Some publications relevant to the Call are;
O. Degirmenci, F., Acar, P., Kaya, Z. (2019) Consequences of habitat fragmentation on genetic diversity and structure of Salix alba L. populations in two major river systems of Turkey, Tree Genetic and Genome, 15:59.
