Communications activities: 

I attended a Conservation Areas Brazilian Congress (VIII CBUC) with Jorge Ahumada on October in Curitiba (PR). We had meetings with people from ICMBio responsible for the biodiversity monitoring program in Brazil.  We talked about establish the monitoring protocol of TEAM in new conservation areas in Amazonia and realize workshops for training.

Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

No unusual events at the site

Protocol Activities: 

CLIMATE PROTOCOL - climate data from May to December were submitted at TEAM portal. All climate equipments are operating properly.

TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - Array 1 deployment happened in late October (not in August as foreseen) and the sampling was completed in November. Images from Array 1 were not processed in DeskTEAM yet but it will be possible until the end of January/2016. Array 2 was deployed in late November and cameras trap are still in the field. All data will have a delay but we will fixed that soon.

VEGETATION PROTOCOL – the re-measurement of trees and lianas occurred in October. Data was uploaded without problems.


Protocol Problems: 

TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - Five cameras trap were not working properly when taken off of Array 1. Some of cameras worked just few days in the field. Others had pictures with no quality. We will not finish the monitoring on dry period because the cameras will be taken out on late January.

Schedule Problems: 

All protocols had some kind of delay in collecting field data because our agreement started later than foreseen. However, we will be able to update all data as soon as possible (Vegetation and Climate protocols are up to date yet).

Logistical Problems: 

We have problems with the boat motors. We will conducting a maintenance in the next months.
