Collect data on a group of plants commonly called bryophytes (mosses, liverworts, and hornworts) and a group of organisms called lichens, from two key biodiversity areas in Fiji. The information gathered will be used to provide baseline data with direct application to conservation both in the KBAs and on a broader regional and global scale, including IUCN redlists. It will also contribute to building capacity of local scientists and land managers to help manage priority landscapes.

Strategic Direction: 2 Strengthen the conservation status and management of 60 key biodiversity areas
