In addition to Acad. Rahimi and Professor Saidov, the newly appointed Tajikistani delegation to GBIF will include Dr. Bakokhoja Bobozoda, Director of the Institute of Botany, Plant Physiology and Genetics at NAST, which will host the new node responsible for coordinating national-scale GBIF activities.
