Our international team assesses and monitors the conservation status of the targeted plants of the Eastern Arc Mountains and Coastal Forests of Tanzania and Kenya, and provides this information to conservation agencies, including IUCN for Red List assessment.
This is the first such project based on primary collection data plus targeted new exploration as a basis for plant conservation assessments. This approach provides the most reliable and comprehensive information for these plants of conservation priority.
» Train East African collaborators and integrate them into a strengthened network of regional resources for this biodiversity hotspot, and develop the infrastructure in East African institutions to conduct this work.
» Compile all existing information on the targeted plants of this hotspot -- including previously published information, data on museum specimens distributed among widely scattered collections, specialist knowledge, new fieldwork, and new conservation assessments -- into one source that is accessible to all stakeholders.
» Explore and scientifically document the poorly known areas in this biodiversity hotspot.
