Unusual Events at the TEAM Site:

New Species: 

No new species

Protocol Activities: 
  1. 1. Climate Monitoring protocol

No climate data for October- December 2015. The Climate station is not working, due to malfunctioning of the solar panel which is too low to charge the battery of the climate station.

 

2. Terrestrial vertebrate (ct) monitoring.

From Oct 20th – Nov 2nd 2015 camera traps were set out in array 1. From Nov 27th till Dec 7th 2015 were picked up from array 1. From Dec 8th - Dec 17th the memory cards were changed and then deployed in array 2 of the Central Suriname nature Reserve. The annotation of the images hasn’t started yet, because of a technical problem with DeskTEAM. We are in contact with the TEAM Network Technical & Communication Manager to find a solution.

 

3. Vegetation Monitoring protocol

From Oct 20th till Nov 2nd 2015, 4 of the 6 vegetation plots were surveyed at the site.

Protocol Problems: 

Three camera traps didn't work after the pick-up in array 1.

Schedule Problems: 

The protocols had some delay, because our agreement started later than we thought.

Logistical Problems: 

None
