Ms. Nadine Modad's work on mycology (wild mushrooms), conducted in the Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve (JMBR), was featured in the 4th Newsletter of the EduBioMed project (February 2021).
The article highlighted joint mycology research at JMBR Lebanon with the American University of Beirut (AUB) and Universite Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth (USJ). The research is in the framework of the project EduBioMed and part of the promotion of the case studies research and the Mobility activities.
The EduBioMed project aims at strengthening, ameliorating, and upgrading academic activity at four Moroccan and Lebanese Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in the context of Mediterranean Biosphere Reserves (BRs), in collaboration and through networking with Biosphere Reserves' (BR) stakeholders (citizens, visitors, managers and technicians), public administrations and EU Partners.
Data produced will feed the first online database for fungi in Lebanon and be used to produce a field guide of wild mushroom species growing in the reserve.
