Caption: Rainforest researcher, Borneo. Researcher Timm Dobert taking digital photographs of the forest canopy. His camera uses a fisheye lens to capture photographs in very wide angle. Software then calculates the openness of the canopy for light penetration, which is a key measure influencing plant growth at the lower levels of the rainforest. This research is part of a ten year ecological study on the forest known as SAFE (Stability of Altered Forest Ecosystems). SAFE monitors changes in forest ecology as it is progressively logged and turned into palm oil plantations.
