I am a PhD student working on the history and genetics of taro (Colocasia esculenta) in Africa. I collected some samples in Cameroon, Congo, Kenya, Tanzania, but in order to complete my work I would need some samples of taro in the upper Egypt/Mediterranean/Near East region (Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan). Is there anyone that would be able to have a look around and see if it is possible to find this plant? It normally grows in wet areas and I would only need some dry leaves, easy to collect and to send.
I can send exact information in an email.
I would be extremely grateful if you could help me. PLEASE, HELP ME!!! :)
Did you try the Weizmann Institute in Rehovot (Israel)

Thanks for your suggestion!
