An open-air exhibition of photographs related to our DRYADE project can be visited in Kraków from November to March.

The DRYADE project was financed by the Polish-Swiss Research Programme and carried out by our Group, in collaboration with the research group of Nadir Alvarez at the University of Lausanne, in 2012-2016. You can find more information on the scope and results of the project here

The exhibition is exposed on the fence of the Institute of Botany, Polish Academy of Sciences, facing Lubicz street. It was designedconsists of a short description of the project and of 12 colour reproductions of photographs taken by the photographer Marcin Zięba during the exciting project session that took place in 2016 (see an information on the session here). The photographs present artistic impressions on various aspects of the project, from exploring ancient collections deposited in an herbarium to employing the most up-to-date laboratory technologies unraveling genomic information from individuals and populations.

Information on our exhibition was published on the web page of the Division II (Biological and Agricultural Sciences) of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
