Dr Félix Forest


Senior Research Leader at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew



Dr Felix Forest is a plant evolutionary biologist with particular interest in phylogenomics, biogeography and conservation, and the Cape region of South Africa. He works on the application of phylogenetics to conservation planning and the integration of evolutionary approaches in conservation, in particular, the application to plants of the Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) approach. Following the publication of the EDGE list for gymnosperms, he is now leading the development of a similar list for the whole of angiosperms.
