Protocol Activities: 

Terrestrial Vertebrates were censused for the second time. Camera traps were deployed for at least 30 days at each of 60 points across two arrays. Photo processing started and will be completed in the next quarter.

Six vegetation plots, established in 2011, received their first census in the (relatively) dry season. The data were processed and most trees were identified to the species level.

The climate station, established in December 2011, collected its first batch of climate data.

Logistical Problems: 

The climate station is running with a provisional support structure; an order for an instrument tower had not come through and this was discovered too late. A proper 3-m instrument tower was ordered from the USA. The sensors will be moved to the final tower during the next quarter.
