Help with collecting Nicotiana glauca (Tree Tobacco)

Unread post by IdoIzhaki » Tue Dec 22, 2015 11:07 am

Hello everyone. My name is Ido Izhaki. I'm a professor at the University of Haifa, Israel. I am studying Nicotiana glauca (Treee Tobacco), an invasive species from South America that grows throughout South Africa. I plan to visit Cape Town area in February to collect nectar of this plant. I have received a database of GPS coordinates of recent collections of the plant but since this plant is very dynamics (appears and after a short period disappears) I would like to get accurate locations of recent observations of this plant, preferably GPS coordinates.

Furthermore, I am wondering if any participants in this forum might be able to help me when I'll be there to find the plants. I am able to provide some financial compensation in return for such help.

Thanks in advance to anyone who might be able to help me in this matter, I really appreciate any help I can get in this work. Please either reply here or contact me via email at:

Dear IdoIzhaki,

Welcome to the forums :thumbs_up: .

My advice would be to contact Dr Stefanie Freitag who is a scientist with SANParks through e-mail stefanie.freitag@sanparks.org.
Always be humble and understanding.

Another of those nasty Kruger exotics. A declared Category 1b invader.
