Research Agreement with La Comunidad de Monte Grande, Bolivia

  • May, 2011

Through the RAINFOR project, funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and led by Oliver Phillips, the University of Leeds has completed the signing of a research agreement with La Comunidad de Monte Grande (Bolivia). The agreement objective ensures the monitorring of woody plants in the permanent plots previously established by local researchers associated with the Herbario del Sur de Bolivia, in the pre-montane transitional most-dry forest managed by this community. The work will contribute to the ForestPlots.net database, and will involve local researchers in fieldtrips and training courses whenever possible.
