The INDAAF measurement network spans 13 stations across the African continent, representative of all major ecosystems: dry savanna – wet savanna – forest.

  • 8 sites in West and Central Africa (Niger, Mali, Senegal, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon and Congo)
  • 5 partner sites (4 in South Africa and 1 in Tunisia)

Each INDAAF site is under the responsibility of an african Principal Inverstigator (PI).
