North Peru

2005 saw the return to North Peru and Iquitos, where we started in 2001. Tim Baker, Oliver Phillips, Rodolfo Vasquez Martinez, Nestor Jaramillo and Antonio Pena Cruz from the first expedition were joined by Isau Huamantupa, Jose Luis Marcello, Sandra Patino, Fredy Ramirez, Euridice Honorio, Michael Schwartz, Anne Sota Thomas, Kuo-Jung Chao and Helen Keeling to recensus plots at Allpahayuo, Yanamono and Sucusari, as well as set up new plots at Jenaro Herrera. Additionally, data was collected on tree mortality modes, coarse woody debris and tree crown illumination as part of PhD projects by Kuo-Jung and Helen.
