Unfortunately due to local issues we are unable to send students to NMFP.
However the field station is as active as ever- it is full of undergraduates from Nigerian universities doing their six month ‘work experience’ and the field assistants are carrying out all the routine sampling. For international postgraduate students interested in working on samples from the field (such as leaf samples for population genetics) the option remains open.
In the meantime, PhD students looking for tropical research in primatology, seed dispersal and similar projects, there is an opportunity to enrol at UC and work in Kibale National Park in Uganda. Such projects will be a collaboration with myself and Professor Colin Chapman.
