This site brings together scientists and development specialists
from several organisations including:-
Natural Resources Institute
Steve Torr, David Hall and John Morton are scientists at the Natural
Resources Institute in the UK.
Department of Veterinary Services
Clement Mangwiro is currently a research officer in the Zimbabwe
of Veterinary Services. Glyn Vale was a former head of the Department's
Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Control Branch and John Hargrove was Regional
Glossinologist. Much of the research that underpins this site was
undertaken at the Department's research station at Rekomitjie.
The idea of developing a 'virtual entomologist' to help NGOs design
tsetse control operations arose, in part, through our work with FARM
Africa in Ethiopia. Subsequently, Tibebu Habtewold, Sheila Willis,
Christie Peacock and other members of FARM provided guidance on making
Tsetse Plan suitable for development NGOs.
Capricorn Consultants Ltd
Tsetse Plan arose, in part, through our work with various community-based
livestock projects in Tanzania, including the Tanga
Dairy Development Project. Birgit Van Munster and Chesnodi Kulanga
were involved in these earlier projects and subsequently, as members
Consultants, helped field test Tsetse Plan.
Centre for Tropical Veterinary Medicine
As well as managing the Animal
Health Programme which supported the development of the tsetse.org
site, Ian Maudlin and other scientists from the Centre for Tropical
Veterinary Medicine contributed to the contents of this site.
|ERGO and TALA
||The Environmental Research Group Oxford (ERGO
Ltd) and the University
of Oxford's Trypanosomosis and Land Use in Africa (TALA)
research group produced the tsetse distribution maps and kindly allowed
us to reproduce them at tsetse.org.
