Protocol Activities: 

CLIMATE PROTOCOL - climate data from October to December 9 were submitted in TEAM portal. All climate equipments are operating properly (except a previously reported HMP155 sensor).

 

TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - Array 1 deployment happened in November (not in September as foreseen) and the sampling was completed in late December. Because of that, it were not possible install the Array 2 in 2016. So cameras will be deployed in January 2017. Images from Array 1 were not processed in DeskTEAM yet. All data will be submitted with a delay.

 

VEGETATION PROTOCOL – the re-measurement of trees and lianas occurred just in November (not in October as foreseen). No problems during the monitoring.

 

Protocol Problems: 

TERRESTRIAL VERTEBRATES PROTOCOL - There were problems with camera traps that were not working properly (old model) and we can not replace them in time. Since we finished Array 1 in December, we did not have time to check the images and their quality.

 

Schedule Problems: 

All protocols had some kind of delay in collecting field data because our agreement started later than foreseen and we received financial resources just in October. However, our main objective is to update all data as soon as possible. After that, we have to think about a better date to renew our agreement.

Logistical Problems: 

How cameras were installed just in November it was not possible taken them of and re-install in Array 2, because we did not have enough time because of holidays in December. The first boat to Caxiuanã in 2017 will be on January 18, so the cameras will installed from this date.
