The SAFE Project is one of the largest ecological experiments in the world. We are studying how biodiversity and ecosystem function change as forests are modified by human activities. As well as studying the change, we also explore whether preserving sections of forest within modified landscapes and around waterways can protect biodiversity and ecosystem function, and how much protection is needed to be effective.
SAFE is one of three large-scale field experiments managed by the South East Asia Rainforest Research Partnership (SEARRP), and represents a close collaboration with Imperial College London and local partners. Our scientific research encompasses expertise from many institutions, each running interlinked projects to better understand the ecology of changing landscapes.

Submission of data files to the SAFE Zenodo community is not via direct upload to the community and we will reject directly uploaded records. All data files need to be submitted through the SAFE project website:
The submission process through the website runs automatic validation to ensure that the required metadata for each dataset is provided and is consistent. It also allows us to extract spatial, temporal and taxonomic indices for datasets and to build an index on tabular data fields. The formatting requirements for submission can be found at this link.
