Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

No unusual events at the site.


New Species: 

We recorded a domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) in a camera trap. This camera trap point is near of a house of Caxiuanã’s community, so probably it is not a dog used by hunters.


Protocol Activities: 

- The climate data from October up to December were collected and submitted (both protocols).
- Terrestrial Vertebrates protocol finalized its sampling in November.
- The re-measurement of trees and lianas in 6 plots occurred in November.


Protocol Problems: 

Terrestrial Vertebrates protocol – During Array 2 sampling, two of our cameras trap (11 and 23) took pictures continuously for no reason (apparently), and both stopped only when the battery finished. Three other cameras (02, 24 and 28) were off at the time of removal. The cameras have consumed more battery than normal. All the cameras were tested and are working normally.


Schedule Problems: 

Vegetation protocol – the schedule was changed from October to November. Therefore the data were sent late.
Terrestrial Vertebrates protocol – we picked up the camera traps of Array 2 just in November, so we got out of schedule. Because of that, our data was uploaded just in January.


Logistical Problems: 

Our financial reports have been sent late. This ends up delaying the sending of money by CI. In addition, we have had problems with the release of the money in Brazil. The last time it took 32 days. This delay does not help the project progress.



In DeskTEAM – Terrestrial Vertebrates: we would like to put notes in some images, but this option is not available.
