About the research
Tropical forests are one of the world’s most important weapons in the fight against climate change thanks to their ability to remove carbon from the atmosphere. Research conducted in Yangambi is helping scientists measure carbon uptake by intact tropical forests through periodic censuses in permanent sample plots, and obtain data on greenhouse gas exchanges between the atmosphere and the forest.
