These expeditions took place between 1996 and 1998 with the objectives of
producing inventories of areas visited; ecological studies and a training course in
bryology at a local university. The collection of herbarium specimens was also a major objective for the project and provides a long lasting legacy of research material to make available to bryologists worldwide.
The Mosses and Liverworts of Uganda project, coordinated by Jeff Bates, is on-going and aims to build on the results of these expeditions by producing a bryophyte flora of Uganda. This is being published in a series of papers in Journal of Bryology.
