Main Focus

Basira’s main research focus is to study the origins of woody perennial fruit crops in Central Asia. Using a combination of archaeobotanical and chemical residue analysis data, she hopes to better understand the cultivation and domestication of woody perennials in the region. In addition, this study could have a noticeable contribution to the knowledge of plant trade or exchange in Central Asia.
