Ecuador

Five years on from the previous major campaign in Ecuador, we remeasured plots across the Oriente during two months of fieldwork in Ecuador. David Neill (Fundacion Jatun Sacha and Missouri Botanical Garden) coordinated many of the arrangements within Ecuador; Nigel Pitman (Duke University), Tony Di Fiore (New York University) and Terry Erwin (Smithsonian Institute) again contributed plot data. A team of Ecuadorian and Peruvian botanists and foresters worked hard in some of the most diverse and dynamic (and therefore challenging!) plots in the RAINFOR network.
