Peru 2018

When I wasn't incapacitated by soroche (altitude sickness) I traveled through the high Peruvian Andes with my colleague Italo Revilla in search of Isoëtes. We were able to find and collect over six species including the interesting Isoëtes andicola (previously thought to be in a distinct genus Stylites, because of its elongate rootstock). Along the way we also collected over 100 species of ferns.
