Chasing... the Tallest Trees in Europe
So what if you received an unexpected call asking you to join a Giant Tree Trek visiting what probably are the tallest trees in Europe... and you said "Yes, Sir (of course!!!)"?
What if as a result of such an adventure you had gathered several hundred measurement data & biological samples, several hundred photographs documenting the whole expedition, and several dozen minutes of video footage depicting such unique Eucalyptus Tree Giants?
What if you had the company of one of the best eucalypt experts in the planet, and of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science in such a tree hunting trip?
The only possible reasonable answer to those three question is... you do it... you enjoy it... and you tell the story!
So... What about joining us & the friends making this all possible in a virtual trek to the "Nova Australia" of Spain & Portugal while chasing Eucalypt Giants with Dean Nicolle?
If your answer is also "Yes, Sir", the only thing you have to do is fastening your seatbelts, and staying tuned... to Eucalyptologics!
And who is that guy?
Dr. Dean Nicolle, "El Cazador de Eucaliptos", has discovered or co-discovered +50 new eucalypt taxa in Australia, helping the known eucalypt biodiversity threshold surpass 1000 taxa. He is the Director of Currency Creek Eucalypt Research Arboretum, the most complete eucalypt collection and genetic repository in the world, with +90% of those taxa represented and cultivated for scientific purposes. He has collected and preserved +5000 eucalypt genetic lines, many of them endangered species or subspecies, some facing extinction risks. He is author or co-author of +50 scientific articles on eucalypt botany, and his work has made +40 extra articles by several international scientific research groups possible. Arborist and ecologist, his remarkable eucalypt tree inventory surpasses +9000 specimens, and from it, +4000 technical reports on remarkable eucalypts have been produced, including +150 new additions to the Australian Giant Tree National Register.
