In late summer all our three Cameroonian students defended their Master theses at the University of Buea. Mercy, Kobe and Jennifer spent about four months in the field with us, assissting with our projects and collecting their data under supervision of Robert Tropek (and factually of all of us). During summer they processed the data and wrote their theses. All the work lead to successful defenses with excellent evalutions. Congratulations to all three and we wish them a good luck in their future career!
