          We are happy to launch the blog of the GDRI 191 South Africa-France : "Biodiversity and Global Change in Southern Africa".

           This blog will give an overview of our actions and also will regularly present commentaries/posts on  South African-French research collaboration from the GDRI participants.


More than 60 scientists are involved, from eight French Research Institutions (CNRS, EPHE, INRA, CIRAD) or Universities (Montpellier II, Grenoble I, Paris VI, La RĂ©union) and eight South African institutions including Universities (Wits, Pretoria, Rhodes, Stellenbosch, UKZN and UCT), the Transvaal Museum and a governmental institution (SANBI) as well as the University of Zimbabwe.
