Tropical managed Forests Observatory

Site location


TmFO includes so far 29 experimental sites set up by various institutes and research centers around the Tropics. TmFO spreads over three main tropical forest regions: the Amazon basin, the Congo Basin, and South East Asia. TmFO encompasses:


  • 11 countries
  • 40+ researchers
  • 645 permanent sample plots (and more to come)
  • 1265 ha of forest monitored over 5 to 29 years


TmFO focuses on tropical logged forests and we expect new plots to have a least the below-mentioned features:


  • pre-logging inventories
  • standardized tree measurements
  • at least one post-logging inventory
  • a minimal size of 0.25 ha


TmFO is an expanding network and new partners willing to join the network are encouraged to do so!
