Cyprus' supporter of PMRs Dr Costas Kadis appointed as Minister of Health

Prof. Dr. Costas Kadis, the main promoter of the Plant Micro-reserves ideas in Cyprus, has been recently appointed as Minister of Health in his country. Dr. Kadis is one of the most brilliant botanists in Cyprus, maintaining a fluent collaboration with his magister Dr. Costas Thanos (Kapodistrian and National University of Athens, Greece), responsible for the development of the LIFE-Nature CRETAPLANT project, to create a network of PMRs in Western Crete. From our blog, we'd like to express our congratulations to Dr. Kadis, and of course we hope that his stay in the Cyprus' Ministry of Health will ensure an improvement of the funds for applied research -don't forget that the human health is still mostly depending on the wild plants!!-.
