Dietmar Quandt

Professor of Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, Nees Institute for Plant Biodiversity, University of Bonn Germany

Dietmar Quandt visited Gobabeb for the first time in 2018 to start a fruitful collaboration on the biodiversity and evolution of the Namib flora, fauna and microbiome as well as the biotic and abiotic interactions of life in the desert. Currently, he is frequently working in Gobabeb and its surrounding on population genetics and the biogeographic history of the Namib flora.

In addition, the partnership resulted in FRAMe (Farmer Resilience and Melon Crop Diversity in southern Africa), a collaborative research project under the umbrella of SASSCAL II (the Southern African Science Service Centre for Adaptive Land Management).
