FoRCE is a pantropical experiment, with permanent field plots in Tanzania, Australia, Colombia and Vietnam. We aim to measure and understand long-term tropical forest dynamics and interactions with climate, human disturbance and experimental management. We are using a combination of permanent sampling plots, hemispherical photographs, experimental vine removal and remote sensing. To find out more watch our video below. You can also go to our About page, and follow us on Twitter.
Our new forest experiment is inviting researchers to use our permanent sample plot infrastructure to test their own hypotheses – and in turn help us to build a bigger picture of the drivers of forest succession and management success.
