Tropical managed Forests Observatory

Site location

TmFO includes so far 24 experimental sites set up by various institute and research centers around the Tropics. TmFO spreads over three main tropical forests regions: the Amazon basin, the Congo Basin and South East Asia. TmFO encompasses:

  • 9 countries
  • 40+ researchers
  • 490 permanent sample plots (and more to come)
  • 921 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 encourage to do so!
