Personal message

I am Lerato Hoveka, a full-time PhD Botany student at the University of Johannesburg. I am working on climate change and conservation planning. Understanding how climate change will affect species distributions, especially for range restricted taxa, is paramount to conserving biodiversity. My research aims to develop climate change integrated strategies for conserving South Africa’s endemic flora. I am assessing how climate change will impact the country’s endemic flora and determining whether or not current protected areas are sufficient for protecting plant diversity in the future. I will also identify protected area networks that will optimise habitat representation for a large group of endemic plants.

Last year, I presented my work at the Global Partnership for Plant Conservation Conference and at the University of Johannesburg post-graduate symposium, where I won the award for best PhD presentation.

I would like to be assisted with my tuition and university residence fees that amount to R64000. Your assistance is highly appreciated.
