Research project title: Diversity of plants, pollinators, and their network in natural and agricultural habitats of the Eastern Afromontane biodiversity hotspot in Kenya

Research goals: Assess plant-pollinator diversity using molecular tools (DNA bar coding) to determine functioning of plant-pollinator interactions and ecosystem services. Findings from this study will provide very important knowledge about ecological networks and their stability across different landscapes to ascertain the conservation of the ecosystem service of pollination.

Host project and funding: APPI (JRS Biodiversity Foundation)

Supervisors: Dr. Michael Lattorff and Dr. Regis Babin, both from (icipe).

Bio: Fairo holds a BSc in Zoology and Animal Physiology from The University of Buea, Cameroon and an MSc in Zoology and Animal Physiology (Specialty Entomology) from the University of Buea, Cameroon.
