Biological Field Stations in the Heart of the Congo Basin Rainforest

CBI’s Bouamir and Somalomo research field stations have been featured in the Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America (ESA).

“Located in the middle of the 526,000‐ha Dja Faunal Reserve in southern Cameroon, Bouamir is home to more than 100 mammal species, 400 bird species, and 2,000 plant species.

Bouamir is one of very few biological field stations in the rainforests of Central Africa, providing a critical platform for conducting research of this vast and under‐studied ecosystem.

The Somalomo Research Station, which is located in a village on the edge of the Dja Reserve, serves as a support base for teams traveling to Bouamir and offers opportunities for conducting research in secondary rainforests and riverine habitats.”
