oa CSIR Science Scope - Reaping rewards from South Africa's botanicalriches : plant ecologist
Finding the right mix of indigenous plants, agricultural practices and agroprocessing is what makes the contribution of the CSIR's Lizandé Kellerman singular. Plant ecology is a highly specialised field and focuses on the study of the diversity of plants in an ecosystem. A plant ecologist by training, Kellerman is part of a CSIR team that promotes the medicinal plants and essential oils sector in South Africa. She has been responsible for the planning, implementation, management and financial administration of three rural community-based projects where indigenous plants are grown for their commercial value.
