Year: 
2016
Quarter: 
July - September
Protocol Activities: 

Fauna: The protocol of Terrestrial Vertebrates is completed and the data are in the TEAM database.

Flora:  The 2016 plot data are updated and uploaded to the TEAM database. There are still new recruits that need to be identified and morphospecies that remain as such. We plan to hire a botanist to do this in year 2017 along with the census of the six 1-ha plots.

Climate: Climatic data is currently updated until October 5th.  There are duplicated clima data for the period of January 3rd to March 19th that need to be removed. 

Protocol Problems: 

Climate: On April 25th we noticed the fan of the climatic station was not working. The fan was fixed on August 12th at 5:30 pm. 

Suggestions: 

As the Flora and Fauna protocols are completed, it will be helpful if funds for 2017 can be released before the end of this year so we can start fieldwork either late December 2016 or early January 2017.
