Training will include identification of all unidentified fern collections from El Salvador in collaboration with specialists and using the unparalleled library resources at the NHM. Products will include an updated checklist and database of Salvadoran ferns, published both in print and on-line. The up-to-date inventory of the ferns of El Salvador will contribute directly to El Salvador’s National Biodiversity Strategy, GTI work programme and to Target 1 of the GSPC.
