Acjanaco

At a stunning 3579 m elevation, our new plot at Ajcanaco is the highest elevation plot in the GEM network. It is located at the top of the Kosñipata elevation gradient, the biggest elevation transect carbon cycling and traits monitoring study in the world!

Message from William Farfan Rios (from Trocha Union):
"I'm sending you some pictures of the new platform that we built in Trocha Union in the campsite close to the plot TRU-04. It was built with the effort and sweat of the UNSAAC students, some local people and the Chambasa. People who knows the place will appreciate this effort. Now this wonderful place will be even more beautiful to work, camp and enjoy the Nature.
This infrastructure was possible thanks to Miles and Yadvinder's support."

    Publishing your photos?
    Maja Sundqvist, a post doc at SLU in Umeå, Sweden is writing a review on Community And Ecosystem Responses To Elevational Gradients: Processes, Mechanisms, And Insights For Global Change to be submitted to Annual Reviews in Ecology, Evolution and Systematics early 2013.
    She would like to include photos from a low, mid and high elevational site from our Andean transect in one of her figures. Would anyone have nice photos to contribute to her paper? If so, please send to Maja.Sundqvist@slu.se (please add the photos to GEM, too!).

    Thank you,
    Cécile
