Ted Feldpausch y  Nikée Groot coordinaron el trabajo de campo en Guyana, en cooperación con la Comisión Forestal de Guyana y el Centro Internacional Iworkrama para la Conservación y el Desarrollo del Bosque de lluvia. Se re-midieron 12 parcelas permanentes de 1 hectárea. Este trabajo fue financiado con un fondo de “urgencia” de la Fundación Gordon y Betty Moore y NERC-AMAZONICA. These plots had been remeasured and added to the RAINFOR network in 2010 by a team led by Roel Brienen and Abel Monteagudo. The 2012 recensus should help establish to what extent the 2010 drought affected the white sand, brown sand and mixed forests in Mabura Hill, Pibiri and Iwokrama. Included in the team was Martijn van Berlo, an MSc student of the University of Utrecht, who is currently doing his thesis on the phylogeography of Eperua falcata and Eperua grandiflora across the Guianas, by collecting DNA samples and GPS coordinates.
