BIOTA Africa : BIOdiversity Monitoring Transect Analysis in Africa
Title: BIOTA Africa : BIOdiversity Monitoring Transect Analysis in Africa
Title abbreviated: BIOTA Africa
Creator: Universität <Hamburg> / Biozentrum Klein Flottbek und Botanischer Garten
Abstract: BIOTA AFRICA has been jointly invented by African and German researchers aiming at the establishment of research supporting sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity in Africa. While, initially, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) was open to fund the initiative, meanwhile several African countries and partner institutions added funding. The project, from its beginning, had a very visible continent-wide dimension and is still expanding especially with regard to its role as a "Biodiversity Observation Network" on the African continent.
