Bobiri Plot 4 (logging concession)

Located approximately 2 km North-east of the Bobiri field station, this plot falls within a logging concession. It is expected that 2 or 3 trees will be felled within the boundaries of the 1 hectare plot, later in 2012. This provides us with an opportunity to take measurements pre- and post-logging.

A few snaps from our recent soil sampling campaigns in Ghana and Gabon late last year (2014). Nutrient samples were collected from cores and bulk density samples from soil pits at regular depth intervals down to 2 meters. All samples are now either in transit, or in the Leeds University soil labs for analysis, following the Rainfor standard protocols which will enable pan-tropical comparisons. Detailed soil profiles were also taken from each soil pit, of which we had 2 at each of our 3 field sites in Ghana and 3 field sites in Gabon. A huge thank you to both the Ghana and Gabon field teams for all the hard work!
