The plots, shown with grey marker symbols on the map, have approximated geographic locations (i.e. lat/long rounded to the nearest 0.1 degrees) in order to avoid any possible IP issues. The plots primarily represent RAINFOR and AfriTRON continental networks as published in Brienen et al. 2015, Lewis et al. 2013, Avitabile et al. 2016.

The Forest Observation System is an international cooperation to establish a global in-situ forest biomass database to support earth observation and to encourage investment in relevant field-based observations and science.
The Forest Observation System provides well curated biomass plot data in a unified format, that is aggregated from tree level data consistently across different networks.
A major aim of FOS is to promote and support long-term collaboration among forest researchers across the world. To protect the rights of partners who have invested significant resources to collect these data (time and money) and to ensure that these data become part of the scientific process in a transparent way we request that:
FOS depends on the contribution of high quality forest plot data by its partners. Do not only use the data but become an active partner and support the long-term future of this observational effort:
