The wild spiny aubergine hunt

1 Post tagged with the fieldwork tag



Very blurry picture of Eric playing the trumpet with the local band in Morogoro. As soon as he started playing everyone came on the dance floor!


Today is our 19th day on the road collecting. We found 25 species of Solanum so far, amazing success! Only four fieldwork days to go. I feel guilty that Frank and David are working with us instead of enjoying the Easter break with their families. Our restaurant in Morogoro had a band playing and they invited Eric to play trumpet with them – he was brilliant!


Me with Udzungwa National Park rangers. Many of them carry guns as a defence against animals and poachers.

I'm Maria Vorontsova from the Botany Department. Join me as I head to Tanzania and Kenya to hunt for wild spiny aubergines. I'm looking forward to an interesting journey, some interesting company and some interesting finds.
