@mz-uddin :

I have been collaborating with Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU) for a project on the evolutionary history of taro; we have some good initial results, but not yet published. We should try to look at floristic reports for conservation areas to see how the wild taros are treated in such reports. In many countries, wild taros are assumed to be "weeds" or "garden escapes" when they may in fact be part of the natural, lowland flora and able to expand from natural edge habitats (forest gaps, river banks) into agricultural and urban environments. Also of interest is information on local use of wild taro populations as an emergency food source (potentially important in the present time, if many people have been losing jobs and are going hungry).

During COVID-19, I have participated in five online seminars and I also presented my thoughts on environment protection, nature conservation and plantation in Bangladesh. Pollution and exotic plantation are very common in Bangladesh. Due to these situation, biodiversity of the country are facing problem in finding food, habitat and shelter. In order to save country's biodiversity we are promoting to control pollutants and to plant native tree species.
