TIPAs Guinea-Conakry (2016-2019)
Identifying Tropical Important Plant Areas (TIPAs) of Guinea-Conakry, West Africa.
My role is to work with our project partners to document TIPAs in Guinea and collate and analyse data on the priority plant species and habitats and the sites of importance for their conservation in Guinea. This also involves fieldwork and teaching students about field collecting and identification techniques as part of the master's course taught at the National Herbarium of Guinea (HNG). I also work our main project partner, HNG, on a collaborative project to develop a Red Data Book for Guinea.
