Year: 
2016
Quarter: 
January - March
Protocol Activities: 

The first array of 30 camera traps was deployed in December and collected in January.

Mensuration of botanical plots was carried out in January.

Climate data was collected and uploaded for January and March.

The second array of camera traps was deployed in March.

Protocol Problems: 

Due to a computer/software issue, all 2014-2015 annotated camera trap data was lost. After finally having resolved the problem on a new computer, we are in the process of re-annotating the approximately 80,000 images from last year. These will be finished by May 20th.

There seems to be a problem with the conversion software or the climate data for February. We are not able to complete the conversion, although January and March was successfully converted. We will approach the TEAM technical director to seek a solution.

Schedule Problems: 

Presidential elections in March caused insecurity in the country and limited our staff movements to the field. The second array of camera traps and tree mensuration were delayed by approximately one month.
