Dr Lackson Chama visits UCT

Sep 15, 2014

We were very happy to welcome Dr Lackson Chama, from the Department of Zoology and Aquatic Sciences at Copperbelt University in Zambia, on a four-day visit to the University of Cape Town. Lackson gave seminars at the Percy FitzPatrick Institute and at Stellenbosch University on his research on the ecology of avian frugivory, and met with prospective research collaborators, already resulting in some exciting plans for joint work. We’re extremely grateful for Lackson’s kind help in facilitating our continued research in Zambia.
