Indonesian Forest Monitoring Network
Indonesia has the third largest area of tropical forest globally, yet long-term forest monitoring networks across the archipelago are missing. This new consortium aims to mobilise and integrate existing permanent sample plot datasets to document forest dynamics across the archipelago, from Sumatra to Papua. Our long-term forest measurements will explore where, how and why the archipelago's tropical forests are changing and advance ecological research on the region's distinct flora.

Biocultural diversity of the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy: towards a UNESCO World Heritage Site
This project aims to monitor changes in plant communities caused by climate change in the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy National Park, document the perceptions of the indigenous U'wa people about the ecosystem services delivered by the Cocuy NP, and mainstream the importance of Cocuy NP across all sectors of society to contribute to its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This project arises from a longstanding passion and research by Professor Antoine Cleef, who since the 1970s has been mainstreaming the importance of the Cocuy as a global centre of plant diversity.
