The Stability of Altered Forest Ecosystems (SAFE) project is a large scale ecological experiment in the rainforests of Malaysisan Borneo. It was set up to explore:
Research directions at SAFE have expanded into a hugely multidisciplinary collaborative network, involving researchers from several large scale consortia. To read more about the project and ongoing research, please visit the SAFE project homepage here:
In addition to research being carried out directly by staff in the SAFE project, the NERC Human Modified Tropical Forests programme has two major research consortia that are working at SAFE and in the broader landscape.
This wiki site is an experiment in providing a shared knowledge base for researchers working at the SAFE project and in the surrounding landscape. The wiki uses the https://www.dokuwiki.org/DokuWiki software to create and serve community created webpages of information and documentation about their research. The aims are to:
This is very much an experiment at the moment but the idea is that it can be a collective notebook on group research and activities. You're not going to want to put everything up here but if you're creating a file or some code that other group members (or external project members) might use, then here is a place to put it.
If you've not used a wiki before, the basic idea is that the wiki creates webpages from very simple markup that allows you to just type text and use a few bits of syntax to create links and the like.
The basic idea is not for internationally acclaimed web design but quick and simple capture of documentation and ideas that will benefit the group research.
For information on using wikis:
Anyone can view the site but to edit pages and add content you will need to get an account. Wiki sites often have a link to register directly, but unfortunately these get spammed a lot, so email the SAFE admin to request an account if you want to contribute.
If you do want to contribute to the wiki then that is great but do remember that this is a live public wiki and anything you put up here is visible to anyone.
Dokuwiki has a large number of plugin extensions available (which only the administrators can install). At the moment, we have the following:
<WRAP class> ... </WRAP>that provides simple alert boxes, centring and a host of other goodies.
