The team is also characterised by its involvement in important scientific projects at both the national and regional levels.
Specifically, the team:
- (i) participates in environmental impact assessments in Cameroon and Gabon (floristic inventories, vegetation mapping, assessment of the IUCN conservation status, ex situ conservation);
- (ii) establishes and monitors a network of permanent plots in Central Africa (AfriTRON; www.afritron.org and IRD; metadata of IRD plots);
- (iii) established the first reference herbarium in Yaoundé for the identification of trees in Central Africa;
- (iv) maps biomass and forest typology through high-resolution field inventories and satellite images (in collaboration with IRD).
Through its many skills, the LaBosystE participates in the implementation of the DYNAFAC collective’s activities.
