Very well deserved! Congratulations to Daniel!
Congratualtions with this well deserved recognition of your work on Phaseolus beans! I hope that this recognition will encourage the PGRFA community and its germplasm workers to further strengthen its efforts to safeguard these precious resources and keep them available for their use by farmers, breeders and other researchers!
We are proud of you!
As Jan Engles says, we are indeed proud of Daniel, who is a great, passionate and amazingly productive scientist and leader. And a wonderful person.
Three cheers for Daniel!
Who worked with Daniel in some collecting missions is very proud of this recognition. This is good to know that this important recognition goes to people who has devoted most of his life to the Genetic Resources for Food.
