Prospective students (from NMMU or elsewhere) interested in terrestrial botany or molecular œcology should contact me directly to discuss academic interests and potential projects (3rd year to PhD). I strongly encourage postgraduate students to develop their own research systems in addition to collaborating with me on current study systems. A typical postgraduate student will have the opportunity to conduct fieldwork, potentially do molecular lab work, and run ecological laboratory or field experiments. Students should integrate across several of these fields in their thesis projects. 

Please note that a list of of potential student funding sources is available here
