Sensing/Monitoring Networks on Carbon Balance and Biodiversity in Tropical Peatland
The Earth’s remaining tropical forests are found mainly in the peatlands and lowland of the Amazon, Central Africa, and Southeast Asia, especially in regions of Kalimantan, Sumatra, and Papua New Guinea, where rich biodiversity can still be found and large amounts of carbon are stored in peat soils UNDP, UNEP, WB, and WRI (2000).

The authors express great thanks for support by JSPS Core University Program between Hokkaido University, Japan and Research Center for Biology (LIPI), Indonesia on Environmental Conservation and Land Use Management of Wetland Ecosystem in Southeast Asia from 1997 to 2006 and by the JST-JICA program on Wild fire and Carbon Management in Peat-Forest in Indonesia from 2008 to 2014, for which more than 200 scientists and also 200 students have been joining. The authors are grateful for the active support and guidance provided by many colleagues, most notably Farhan Helmy, Doddy Sukadri, and Amanda Katili, who work at the National Council on Climate Change—Indonesia.
