Time seems to both stand still and fly by simultaneously this year. As the pandemic continues, it is hard to make plans for the future. Meanwhile, it is already September and there is work that needs to be done. Which is why we are extremely happy that our partners in Cameroon are currently continuing the TIMTRACE fieldwork!
The companies were still happy to receive us at the 6 sites in the south of Cameroon, so a great team from Dschang University is in the forest as we speak. They are continuing the work of September 2019, collecting bark, wood and soil samples. These will be sent to The Netherlands for further genetic and chemical analyses. And samples mean more data mean more results to share!
