The BDFFP, managed by the National Museum of Natural History of the Smithsonian Institution, has been under way for 15 years with the purpose of studying the effect of the size of forest fragments on biological diversity. The project is housed at the National Institute for Amazon Studies (INPA) and has field sites north of Manaus. Under the GCC Program, support has been provided primarily for training in monthlong field biology courses on forest ecology and conservation. Some support was for graduate student research. There has also been considerable effort to take stock of and disseminate the results of research over the years.
