If you are interested in tropical biodiversity and questions related to interactions between people and nature in developing countries think over doing your master thesis in Ethiopia. I, Kristoffer Hylander, have a long experience from this country and right now supervise a PhD-student working on diseases on coffee (from wild coffee in rainforests to coffee plantations). However, I can supervise many different types of master projects in Ethiopia in ecosystems such as Afromontane habitats, agricultural landscapes or forest. There might also be an opportunity to apply for a Minor Field Study scholarship for such a project.
