I hold a PhD in Climate change and Biodiversity. Previously, I got a Master of Science Degree in Natural resources management, and an Agricultural engineering Degree at the Faculty of Agronomic Sciences of the University of Abomey-Calavi (Benin). There, I was involved in several trainings and several fieldworks from which I got extensive knowledge in Natural resources management especially in forestry. My research activities are related to assessing the ethnobiological knowledge of Non Timber Forest Products and especially wild edible plants and setting further strategies for their conservation. I have also been involved in ecological and structural characteristics assessment of forest plant-communities in Benin. I got some experience in practical works doing with students, data collection, data analyses and manuscript writing and publishing in large readership journals. Below are some of my scientific publications: - Hounkpèvi, A., Azihou, A. F., Kouassi, K. E., Porembski, S. & Glèlè Kakaï, R. (2016). Climate-induced morphological variation of black plum (Vitex doniana Sw.) in Benin, West Africa. Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution 63(6): 1073-1084.
