Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

The BCNM and Soberania National Park experienced an intense drought during this quarter, related to an extreme El Nino event. 

Protocol Activities: 

Climate recording was done as planned.

Data from 5 of the 6 vegetation plots were uploaded.

Logistical Problems: 

The 6th vegetation plot still has not been sampled due to the collapse of an access bridge in Soberania. STRI discussed the problem with the authorities but this has not let to repairs. This problem will also complicate the camera trapping in the upcoming field season.
