Recent research expedition to the Central Congo Basin, near Kisangani (DR Congo), together with a PhD student and two MSc students from Ghent University (Belgium). We are interested in how much carbon tropical forests in the Congo basin store and in the soil nutrient cycling, which is important for forest productivity.

Planing the experiment in a local bar; our hut at the Yoko Research Forest; teaching the local kids how to play frisbee; group photo with our local helpers, without the research would not be possible to conduct; weather station at Yangambi (run by INERA), the longest climate data in Central Africa; enjoying the sunset over the Congo river during dinner ob the terrace at Yangambi
