The Smithsonian Institution Global Earth Observatory (SIGEO)                    
are an outgrowth of and companion to the Center for Tropical Forest Science (CTFS).
SIGEO builds on and expands the CTFS global network of forest plots, transforming it
into a platform for a broader range of scientific investigations. CTFS research on
tropical forest dynamics continues, but joins new initiatives to study carbon fluxes, temperate forests, and the impacts of climate change on biodiversity and forest

In the environmental sciences, SIGEO stands as one of the premier US-led
international partnerships. Because of its extensive biological monitoring,
unique databases, and the expertise of its partners, SIGEO promises to
enhance society’s ability to evaluate and respond to the impacts of global
climate change.
