Rwenzori plant story

I have just finished listening to the recordings from our trip to the south west of Uganda. Our list of plants is growing. We collected some fun stories on Avocados, Blackjack, Vanilla, Giant Lobelias, Cassava, and a few other plants. We went on a 4 day walk in the Rwenzoris and saw amazing plants. I will write more thoroughly about the plants we saw in coming days but once we had climbed a bit, the forest looked more like New Zealand broadleaf podocarp forest than anything I have seen, and the species composition at the genus level was like looking at a list of European weed species. Pretty interesting times. Until we sort some photos and get some species names nail down here is a plant story we collected – http://vimeo.com/31905664 

enjoy.
