Understanding the management, ecological and exploitation status of O. lanceolata is vital in ensuring that, international trade and national utilisation of the species is non-detrimental to its survival in the wild/forests. East African Range States (Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda) with unsustainable and illegal trade in the species are the focus of this project. The objective of this project is to: assess the current (management, ecological and exploitation) status of Osyris lanceolata, with the aim of ensuring that the international trade of products is not detrimental to the conservation of the resource in the wild/forests of range States.
