New opportunities for doctoral studies aligned with individual biosphere reserves in South Africa have been announced recently: the GreenMatter Mapula Awards. Bursaries are available for six students to start with their doctoral studies in 2015, of which one student will be placed with the CWBR and supervised by the Department of Conservation Ecology and Entomology at Stellenbosch University. Research topics will be finalized in collaboration with a relevant supervisor, but must address conservation concerns in the CWBR and must have a strong applied component. Add a comment
