•  WABIKON FOREST DYNAMICS RESEARCH PLOT  •

The Wabikon Forest Dynamics Research Plot is one of the Biodiversity Center's signature projects. The Smithsonian Institution has added the plot to the portfolio of temperate climate sites recognized by their Center for Tropical Forest Science. Since the plot was established in 2007, it has been used for a variety of plant and animal studies. The Wabikon plot presents a great opportunity for applying our geospatial technology tools.
