Our Conservation Partners

The German Research Foundation (DFG)

The German Research Foundation (DFG) coordinates the work of 17 German and Ecuadorian universities at NCI's San Francisco Scientific Station on the northern edge of Podocarpus National Park in Ecuador. Since 1997, they have conducted one of the largest ecosystem studies worldwide, investing more than $2.5 million a year in interdisciplinary studies of tropical mountain forests. The second phase of the research program initiated in 2007 will give greater emphasis to maintaining these ecosystems with practical applications for local conservation. Results to date include 109 Doctoral and M.Sc. thesis (33 of which were Ecuadorian), training of 700 research interns from local universities, and 140 papers published in peer-reviewed journals.
