Oaks of Southeast Asia Identification Workshops


4 January 2022



In November 2021, the Global Conservation Consortium for Oak hosted a free, online series of identification workshops, focusing on oaks in Southeast Asia.  The workshops provided a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the priority threatened oak species native to Southeast Asia, including useful information on how to identify the species out in the field, and more. The first, led by Dr. Joeri Sergej Strijk, of the Institute for Biodiversity and Environmental Research, Universiti Brunei Darussalam, and the Alliance for Conservation Tree Genomics, focused on oaks of Brunei and Borneo. The second included presentations on the oaks of Vietnam, by Dr. Ngọc Nguyễn Văn, of Da Lat University, and oaks of Laos, by Dr. Phetlasy Souladeth, of the National University of Laos. The recordings of both workshops can be viewed here.
