Tim Baker, Sandra Patino, Beto Quesada, Michael Schwarz and Alexandre Santos visited forest plots at Jari and Tapajos, managed by Natalino Silva (Embrapa, Belem). These sites have some of the longest records of forest dynamics of any eastern Amazonian plots. In addition, the team also visited Mocambo, a fragment of forest very close to Belem, where the forest dynamics have been monitored since 1956. This site is now maintained by Rafael Salamao (Museu Goeldi, Belem). Finally, Sandra and Michael sampled a new site at Peixe Boi, managed by Ima Vieira (Museu Goeldi, Belem).
