Field Trip CRC990-EFForTS (22-23 June 2012)

Discussion in the model plot 50 m x 50 m at UNJA Campus

Following the seminar and kick-off workshop in Bogor, groups of CRC990-EFForTS researchers made further travel to Jambi to continue discussion with Jambi University (UNJA) researchers that was held at the Hotel Golden Harvest. The next day, a field visit to a model plot 50 m x 50 m established at the UNJA arboretum was also made to give an idea especially to the PhD students and researchers of Group A (Enviromental Setting) and Group B (Biota and Ecosystem Services) on the technical arrangement of the experiments at the plot.
