María Teresa Cáceres, Professor at the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and member of the IATEXT together with Marcos Salas Doctor in Biology from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and member of the IUNAT have recently published in The Conversation: “What is more speedy, a banana or a conqueror? ”.

There are numerous cultivation exchanges between Europe, Asia and Africa during the 15th and 16th centuries due to the contacts that these societies had. With this article, both researchers delve into the expansion of crops, taking as an example the banana or also called banana in the New World, whose first concrete reference is found in 1516 when Fray Tomás de Berlanga brought the bananas from the Canary Islands to the island of Santo Sunday.
