Top
Sophisticated sensors that measure leaf wetness, soil moisture and temperature are being used to uncover the microclimatic conditions favourable for rapid natural regeneration of degraded rainforest environments.

A network of ten sensor nodes, connected wirelessly, has been sampling parameters such as rainfall, humidity, temperature, soil moisture and the amount of available light inside the forest every five minutes since May 2008. Another 200 solar-powered nodes are being installed, some of which will measure biodiversity indicators, such as bird and frog calls.
