'Sunkha' palms are endemic to Bolivia, where they occupy an extremely limited range and face several threats. Picture taken during a field trip in 2019 to visit wild stands of the palm. Part of Nicol�s' research focuses on the conservation genomics of Parajubaea palms in Bolivia.

The yellow tag is the colony's unique identifier, and the color card is used to color correct the photographs, as things tend to look bluer than they actually are given water's refractive properties.
