This observatory is located in the Sahel zone and is the site closest to the desert. Zoologists and botanists are working together in this massively pasture-impacted area, especially on the interesting phenomenon of the tiger bush. At this site, botanical and ethnological studies have been carried out in the framework of the SFB 268 by the University of Frankfurt together with the local partners for more than 13 years.
