An IGS exchange student at University Putra Malaysia (UPM) participated in an ecological survey at Pasoh Forest Reserve in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. She observed forestry measurement using a 50 meter tower, as well as an ecological survey using drones, and one of the largest survey plots in the world. Correspondingly, she learned the latest forest survey investigative methods.
