The ANR JCJC project AFRODYN is funded. This project will explore past dynamics and future resilience in tropical rain forests of Central Africa. It will start in 2016 and last 4 years.
In February 2015, my colleague Vincent Droissart, an orchid expert and I went on a collecting trip to the Campo Ma'an National park, in south Cameroon. The trip involved hicking into the park for a day, and then camping for several days. The trip was great, but hard, mainly because the guides were not that reliable. Several new species were collected; see here.
