A team at the Department of Plant Systematics at the University of Bayreuth has recently identified a new plant species on New Caledonia. The discovery was triggered by a television report from a local TV station about a research trip to the hard-to-access island of Yandé. The TV report was followed on YouTube by French botanist Dr. Gildas Gâteblé—the director of the botanical garden "Villa Thuret" in Antibes—who thought he saw a species of the genus Leichhardtia unknown to him in the footage.
