Research in Southern African plants (IMAGE) University of Johannesburg Caption Prof Annah Moteetee is a botanist at the University of Johannesburg. She currently serves as the Senior Director of the Postgraduate School. She led a study into 14 indigenous wild fruits, to see if these can supplement low protein staple foods. She and her team analyzed the fruits for essential amino acids. These building blocks of protein are essential for development in young children and to maintain health in adults. Her research interests are firstly systematics and taxonomic studies of African plants, mainly the family Fabaceae. Secondly the ethnobotany of southern African plants, in particular the ethnobotany of the Basotho people in Lesotho and South Africa.
