Hi Darcy and the Tambopata team. Great work and thank you for the pictures.
Just one comment: your soil respiration collars appear to be quite high above the ground. They could probably be half that height above the ground. Making the collars lower reduces the air space volume, and therefore increases the sensitivity of the CO2 flux measurement.
No need to change the collars now they are installed, but in future it is good to remember this (the same goes for all the other GEM sites). Keep up the great work and I look forward to visiting Tambopata in August!
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!).
