Protocol Activities: 

 Only the climate protocol has been running during this quarter.

Protocol Problems: 

In late December 2013, the climate staion shut down because of a long blackout that exhausted the UPS to which the climate station is connected. We have lost one month of data so far. We will travel to Yasuni to fix the climate station as soon as this year's (2014) funds become available.

Schedule Problems: 

Delay of funding, and PUCE (the university) policy of not allowing any person to go to the field without having first signed a contract, have prevented us to start the 2014 sampling.

Logistical Problems:
