The The Forest Global Earth Obervatory (ForestGEO) is a global network of forest research plots and scientists dedicated to the study of tropical and temperate forest function and diversity. The multi-institutional network comprises close to 60 research plots across the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe, with a strong focus on tropical regions. ForestGEO monitors the growth and survival of approximately 4.5 million trees and 8,500 species.

  ForestGEO conducts long-term, large-scale research on forests around the world to:

  • Increase scientific understanding of forest ecosystems
  • Guide sustainable forest management and natural-resource policies
  • Monitor the impacts of global climate change
  • Build capacity in forest science
