Type of work I do
"The TFCG botanical surveys have been carried out by Moses Mwangoka who was trained by the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Over the last seven years he has collected over 3500 botanical specimens from the Eastern Arc and Coastal forests and more recently from the Albertine Rift. Duplicates are sent to the National Herbarium in Arusha and to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Moses collections have made a significant contribution to our understanding of the phytogeography of the Eastern Arc and Coastal Forests. Over the next two years, Moses will be working closely with a team from the Missouri Botanical Gardens and IUCN as part of a project financed by the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund."
