Jane Goodall Institute has mapped chimpanzee distribution alongside a biomass model from Dr. Alessandro Baccini of Woods Hole Research Center (see Baccini, A., S.J. Goetz, W.S. Walker, N.T. Laporte, M. Sun, D. Sulla-Menashe, J. Hackler, P.S.A. Beck, R. Dubayah, M.A. Friedl, S. Samanta, and R.A. Houghton. 2012. Estimated carbon dioxide emissions from tropical deforestation improved by carbon-density maps. Nature Climate Change 2:182-185. doi:10.1038/nclimate1354. http://eorder.sheridan.com/3_0/display/index.php?flashprint=1608). Dark green areas show higher biomass, derived from running Alessandro Baccini's Biomass Model produced at the Woods Hole Research Center into Google Earth Engine, and then overlaying chimpanzee nests collected by the JGI surveys and village Forest Monitors using ODK on top of the biomass data. The red polygon shows JGI's REDD project areas, supported by the Royal Norwegian Embassy.
