BIOTA East Africa BIOTA East Africa - Subprojects



The BIOTA East Africa consortium works in the third funding phase for the completion of its mission, which got a sharper profile during phase II. Especially during the past two years all efforts focused on five overarching themes with their well-defined deliverables. All work packages contributed to this goal and adapted their programs to achieve BIOTA East Africa's objectives.
