  • Collaborative science and knowledge sharing in saving threatened cycads of Uganda
    According to the IUCN, out of the four cycad species that occur in Uganda, two are Critically Endangered (Encephalartos equatorialis and E. whitelockii) and one is Endangered (E. macrostrobilus). These three are endemic to Uganda while the fourth species, (E. septentrionalis) is Near Threatened and also occurs in South Sudan and the Central African Republic. Not much is known about the Ugandan cycad’s biology, ecology and general threats – therefore this is limiting conservation of the species.
