Mobilizing vital taxonomic information to support human well-being and ecosystem health in Eastern Africa.


Welcome to our fully illustrated interactive, matrix-based keys to enable rapid identification of over 100 of the most serious invasive plants in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda); 26 invertebrate pest groups that cause serious damage to maize (the major staple crop of the region); and 20 bee genera - the most important group pollinator group for wild and cultivated plants in the region. The keys are supported by fact sheets which include image galleries topics such as brief descriptions, status as a pest or a beneficial species and taxonomic information.
