Here some photos of our campaign to establish permanent plots in Belize last month (May 2015).
Fernando Hancco and I shared the task of setting up intensive Carbon monitoring plots, installing ingrowth cores experiment for fine roots, litterfall traps, total and component soil CO2 efflux, stem respiration, coarse woody debris survey, and others, in accordance with the RAINFOR- GEM Field Manual V3.0.

Currently, the Belize team is still setting up four plots, two in Las Cuevas Forest Research- Chiquibul Forest and two in Hill Bank.

Our gratitude to Percival Cho, Lewis Usher, Shanelly Carrillo and Rudy Balan for their warm welcome, cordiality and motivation.
