Laboratory experiment

Oct 19-23th, 2020

The first laboratory Boswellia seed germination trials started. Salem Hamdiah set up a small seed germination lab in his home town in Qalansiyah. He is determined to follow up the germination of several endangered species every day for 21 days. After the first day, already several seeds germinated, such as Boswellia socotrana seeds from Wadi Ayhaft. It is not easy to conduct an experiment like this in hot moist conditions (30-33°C), and it is the first time in history that seed germinations are carried out on Socotra, led by Socotri researchers!
