Thanks to an inventory of over 6 million trees across five countries, scientists have produced the first continuous maps of the floristic and functional composition of the tropical forests of Central Africa, allowing them to identify the most vulnerable areas to climate change and human pressure.
The dynamics of earthquakes are better understood thanks to three-dimensional modeling of fault sliding.

Do people who got Ebola in Guinea in 2013 – 2016 and survived have long term health conditions? Yes, answers a new study, that show that research must be made even when ther is no urgency any more.
In 2019, the report of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) recalled the extent of biodiversity loss worldwide. In this context, the improvement of biodiversity exploration techniques is essential to implement targeted actions to protect ecosystems.
In arid and semi-arid environments, the land is vulnerable, densely populated and exposed to the wind. In these regions, wind erosion must be taken into account to the same extent as water erosion to anticipate soil changes for agriculture.
Informal economy is not black or illegal economy: it corresponds with unreported precarious jobs, which in some countries account for the overwhelming majority of jobs. Hence the importance of quantifying it.
