Omondi Jackline Atieno

Jackline Atieno is a master’s student at Egerton University in Kenya, in the Faculty of Environment and Resource Development. She is currently pursuing a degree in Natural Resource Management with a focus on forest pathology. She gained interest in the field of nature conservation in pursuit of sustaining the services provided by the ecosystem in supporting life and development. Some of the activities she has been taking part in include restoration of sections of Cherengany hills and Mau forests, which happens to be two among other five main water towers in Kenya. She believes therefore her contribution to what other conservationists are doing, 10% forest cover will be well achieved and some climate change problems attributed to by forest degradation addresses. Jackline is therefore carrying out her master’s degree research project which is dealing with conservation of an indigenous agroforestry tree species, Terminalia brownii, by ‘Assessing seed borne fungal organisms associated with its germination success in drylands of Kenya’. The research work is supported by RUFORUM through TAGDev Program at Egerton University
