Report I was doing a field research in Brazil during February to April 2014. There, I collected the plants, that I am studying in my PhD, in the different Brazilian vegetation types. It was a great opportunity for me as a plant taxonomist, to get to know these species in their natural habitat. This experience helps me to understand better this group of plants. I should also point out that during my field research I met other plant specialists which enabled me to learn more about plant diversity in Brazil. In the same sense the contact with the Brazilian PhD students allowed me to exchange knowledge with my future professional colleagues. In Brazil, I was also meeting research partners, and we discussed together the details of the next steps of our scientific researches. I am grateful that the Research School gave me the possibility to realize my scientific activities in Brazil.
