SATuRN - 2013-08-06

The concept behind this newsletter is that anyone with 15 minutes to spare can learn about the work of SATuRN. The newsletter is presented as a PDF document with links to complete articles at the bioafrica.net website.

In this second issue of 2013 our newsletter we focus on training and capacity building.
