October - December
Communications activities: 

During October we successfully completed training workshops for both the CT and VG teams prior to the field season.  Both training were conducted at the Research and Training Center in the Nam Kading NPA and facilitated by the Site Coordinator and respective team leaders.   CT and VG staff for the 2010-11 season were the same as the previous season and thus the training went well with all team members having prior background knowledge of the protocols and the site.  All team members passed their relevant knowledge and practical tests.  Also attending our VG training workshop were two students from a local agriculture and forestry college.  Following successful completion of the training these students will particpate in the VG team as observers and assistants.

Unusual Events at the TEAM Site: 

No unusual events at this time

New Species: 

No new species found or identified at the site

Protocol Problems: 

At the beginning of October there were problems extracting data from the CL station.  This was due to operator error.  The Site Coordinator has made TEAM aware of this and a solution is being found to extract ot data directly from the logger.  Following this event the CL station team leader has been retrained in the method for changing memory cards and we are confident this problem will not occur again.
