Network

Network

The INDAAF measurement network consists of 10 stations across the African continent, representative of the major ecosystems: dry savanna – wet savanna – forest.

  • 8 sites in West and Central Africa (Niger, Mali, Senegal, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Congo)
  • 2 partner sites (1 in South Africa and 1 in Tunisia)

Each INDAAF site is under the responsibility of a two-person team: a French Principal Inverstigator (PI) and an African PI.
