Quarter: 
January - March
Protocol Activities: 

Re-census of the six 1ha plots (in Array 1 and 2) was completed. Very few recruits were found in all plots except in VG Plot 1 (Array 1) located in lowland forest.

Protocol Problems: 

The battery power for the climate equipment seems to be inadequate due to the high consumption by the aspirator fan. The backup power from the one solar panel also proved to be insufficient due to the high cloud cover over Pasoh during most days of the year.

Suggestions: 

The climate protocol might need to suggest to either include another battery or solar panel or both to ensure data is not lost.
