The new RAINFOR collaboration with the Jardín Botánico de Medellín kicked off in January, with Esteban Alvarez, Alvaro Cogollo, Oliver Phillips and other Colombian investigators and students. We visited the montane forest fragment at San Sebastian near Medellín where a permanent plot was established in 2003.  After reviewing RAINFOR field and database protocols, the JBM team moved on to lowland forest in the Magdalena valley. Over the coming months, the team will recensus permanent plots across Colombia, including Amazon, Andean, Choco and Caribbean forests.
