The invisible world of genetic biodiversity

While it is fairly easy to tell an oak from a spruce, it is much more difficult to make a distinction between different varieties within the same species. That kind of diversity – genetic biodiversity – can sometimes be perceived from different shapes of leaves for example, but most often can only be determined in the lab. Yet, this diversity ensures that plants can survive, adapt and evolve under changing environmental conditions.

I have been communicating about science on that topic for the past ten years and found visual storytelling as my preferred means for getting this science across.
