Centre de Recherche en Science Naturelles (CRSN, Lwiro, D.R. Congo)

The research staff in the Department of Biology at CRSN, Lwiro, studies the biological diversity of the southern Albertine Rift. The research includes documentation of diversity and distribution of the region's organisms, basic research on the natural history of the flora and fauna of the region, population monitoring, and applied research on flora and fauna that affect local human population. The current staff in Biology at CRSN, Lwiro, includes a group of dedicated researchers who have remained with the station for many years. Because of heavy conflicts in the region, much of their work has been without compensation.
