Biodiversity assessment in the Yangambi Biosphere Reserve
This dataset aggregates the biodiversity observations related to trees, slime moulds, fungi, bark lichens, leaf lichens, flies, ants, birds, rodents and shrews : An assessment of the relation between carbon storage and biodiversity in the Yangambi Biosphere Reserve (D.R. Congo). See research article: Reconciling biodiversity and carbon stock conservation in an Afrotropical forest landscape. Van de Perre et al., Sci. Adv. 2018;4:eaar6603, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aar6603

Objectives The general objective is to get baseline reference data on the C balance and biodiversity in pristine and intervened dense tropical forests of the Congo Basin and to increase our understanding in the relationship between both variables as a function of forest management and degradation. Methodology We will measure aboveground and belowground soil carbon stocks and biodiversity indices along a forest productivity gradient (ca. 15 sites) in the Yangambi Man and Biosphere reserve (Y-MaB) and investigate direct effect relationships between forest carbon stocks and biodiversity along this productivity gradient (PG-CB). The different sites, located along a forest productivity gradient, will be tentatively selected using remote sensing techniques and validated on the ground. Carbon stocks will be investigated in the forest core and edges zones. We will bring forward a set of biodiversity indices related to lichens, fungi, higher vascular plants, ants and termites, spiders, flies, bees, arthropods and rodents. The work will be brought into practice using a set of six complementary work packages (study site selection, baseline carbon inventory, biodiversity monitoring, integration of carbon and biodiversity monitoring, and conclusions and suggestions for sustainable policies).
