Report During the period of 16th May to 6th June, I was in the USA, in order to visit two herbaria, as well as to take part in a conference. Particularly in New York herbarium, I got to know Dr. Robbin Moran, one of the biggest pteridophytes expect. Besides consulting the plants collection in Washington DC., I met there Dr. Carl Taylor (one expert in the genus Isoetes) and Dr. Elisabeth Zimmer (research botanist and herbarium curator). We arranged a meeting in which we discussed a collaboration involving studies with the genus Isoetes. In Washington DC. I attended a Conference in which the new studies in pteridophytes were introduced to me. I am thankful to the RUB Research School for its funding.
