The multidisciplinary Taita Research Station is located in Wundanyi, Taita Taveta County in southeastern Kenya. It was established by the University of Helsinki in 2011. The research focus of the station is on geography, geosciences, biological and environmental sciences including studies on land change, botany and biodiversity, climate change, water resources, development and livelihoods. Research projects from other disciplines are warmly welcome, too. For example, a research project on zoonotic viruses was launched at the station recently. The varying topography, landscapes and agro-ecological zones together with biodiversity-rich natural environment and socioeconomic change in the Taita Hills and surrounding semi-arid areas provide unique research questions and great opportunities to both students and scientists.
