Project Description

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Cloves are central to Pemba Island, Tanzania, sometimes grown as a monoculture, but also with native and introduced species. We want to determine the effects of different ecological matrices on clove tree health and productivity using observations and retrospective interviews, and on biodiversity. This involves determining different contexts in which clove trees are grown building a quantitative database across the whole island; interviewing 100 clove-producers to determine long term productivity and health; and understanding the consequences for bird and butterfly diversity. The work is significant because successful inter-planting would mitigate food costs of land conversion and promote endemic island species.
