08/19/15 - The CAFOTROP METHOD has been published in ECOTROPICA
Safe Climbing using the CAFOTROP Method. In order to study rainforest diversity, especially Carapa trees, it is crucial to be able to safely collect specimens high in the canopy, several meters up to dozens of meters above the ground. The know-how of arborists and naturalists allowed to develop a method to safely study canopy biodiversity. (Photo : P.-M. Forget collecting a fruit of Carapa oreophila in Nigeria using the CAFOTROP method).
The CAFOTROP Method : An Improved Rope-climbing Method for Access and Movement in the Canopy to Study the Diversity. Picart, P.-M. Forget, C. A. D’Haese, C. Daugeron, S. Beni, R. Bounzel, E. Kergresse, F. Legendre, J. Murienne, & E. Guilbert - 2014 - Ecotropica 20: 45–52.
