Explore Indonesia's Forests

Here's your chance to explore Indonesia's forests without any of the bugs or the snakes!

Arnold Arboretum Senior Research Scientist and renowned tropical biologist Cam Webb will be spending the next three years researching forest biodiversity in Indonesia, a collaboration with Sargent Fellow Sarah Mathews and senior Indonesian collaborator Teguh Triono. Join Cam and his colleagues as they collect plants, take photographs, and analyze botanical and ecological data gathered in research plots on five Indonesian islands. Examining hundreds of species of plants and their respective habitats will contribute to our understanding of how forests and the plants in them evolved and respond to current environmental pressures. Along the way, you will be introduced to fascinating organisms, encounter the full forces of nature, and meet the wonderful people of Indonesia who assist with the research efforts to protect these remarkable forests. This work is made possible through a grant from the National Science Foundation.
