Taedoumg, Evariste Hermann

As a research assistant, I work closely with researchers, providing technical and scientific support in various areas (ecology and genetics). The main aim of these research activities is to increase the multiple-use of forest resources in the Congo Basin through innovative management approaches that can integrate timber and non-timber forest products to maintain ecosystem integrity and sustain the livelihoods of forest-dependent people.

In addition, I assist with the management and coordination of projects (Congo Basin Beyond Timber project, West African Khaya project) within the Central African Office.

Prior to this, I was in charge of collections for an International Tropical Timber project to develop and implement a species identification and timber tracking system in Africa using DNA fingerprints and stable isotopes.
