3. Vegetation Monitoring Protocol

In January, we collected data on the last vegetation plot located in Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Uganda. Lastly, data collected were entered in excel sheet and uploaded to TEAM website.


Protocol Problems: 

ii) Vegetation plots
There was an error that occurred last year in data entry where we get confused on what to enter on DBH and Point of Measure. This error was corrected with the support from Eileen. We had to make correction on the excel sheet for last year and this year measurements. On the other hand, Eileen had to delete vegetation plot data for same period on TEAM portal so that we can upload corrected vegetation plot data. This issue was resolved.
