Abstract/Summary

CEH activities in the second period have been concentrated in WP 3 and 4. Significant field visits have been undertaken: in WP3, a population of Prunus africana in Kenya was mapped, sampled and marked for subsequent seed collection; in WP4 a training workshop was held in Nairobi to introduce partners to methods for assessment of mycorrhizal diversity. The molecular analysis of the Prunus africana population is now well advanced and should result in significant outputs by the end of period 3. In WP4 assessments of mycorrhizal spore diversity have been completed for Kedowa and differences in soil mycorrhizal diversity tested through trap culture using Pinus patula and Albizia gummifera seedlings. In WP2 acitvities are largely complete, although plans were put in place for a student visit in the third period and in WP5 CEH's supervisory role continued
