Vertical gardens research in Madagascar

Vertical gardens research in Madagascar In 2010, Ignacio Solano and the team of Paisajismo Urbano went to Madagascar Island to carry out an ambitious research project about mycorrhizal fungi, which resulted in the evolution of the Vertical Gardens: the Vertical Ecosystems. More than 65 million years ago, the Madagascar Island moved away from the rest of the African continent, leaving its biodiversity isolated from the continental evolution, and producing a different evolutionary rhythm for its species than the one of the rest of the planet.

Nowadays, it is estimated that 80 % of the species in Madagascar are endemic, and it is considered a natural reservoir unique in the world. Given the enormous business exploitation that the island is suffering and the alarming biomass decline produced by the international exploitations, the Paisajismo Urbano team decided to study this remote corner before its damage was bigger.
