The Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring (TEAM) Network, a partnership between Conservation International, the Smithsonian Institution, and the Wildlife Conservation Society, was established to meet the need for a standardized, ongoing program monitoring the status of tropical forests. The TEAM Network is a global system monitoring biodiversity, land use and cover change, and climate in seventeen tropical forest monitoring sites. At each field site, TEAM implements annual monitoring using standardized protocols including vegetation plot monitoring, camera trapping, and remote sensing. This talk will describe the TEAM Network approach, and report on initial findings of trends in tropical land use and cover change and biodiversity change as revealed from analyses of TEAM data. The talk will also discuss several areas where potential exists for future research and collaboration using these open datasets.
