This is a control tool, used to help alleviate the threat to rural livelihoods posed by the bird pest Quelea quelea lathamii.
The model generates a forecast for breeding patterns of Quelea quelea lathamii over the whole of Southern Africa.
This model has been produced by the Natural Resources Institute of the University of Greenwich, in collaboration with the University of Edinburgh.
Links to institutions involved in the development of the model are in the Institutions Panel, to the right of this page.
The SADC Regional Remote Sensing Unit (RRSU) is operating the Quelea Breeding Forecast Model in southern Africa,
with technical guidance from the Natural Resources Institute.
The RRSU has also adapted this website from the one used by the Natural Resources Institute for disseminating forecast products
via the Internet.
Archived and current forecasts continue to be available from the Natural Resources Institute.
