Mukundi Mukundamago (South Africa)
Research Project: Predicting the spatio-temporal distribution of common plant-pollinator interactions in two contrasted and changing landscapes of the Eastern Afromontane biodiversity hotspots in Kenya: the Aberdare range and the Taita Hills
Research Goals: This research will seek to model the impact of a combination of various environmental factors on main plant-pollinator interactions in order to predict their distribution under changing land use and climate.
Host Project and Funding: APPI project (JRS Biodiversity Foundation)
