Last week, we celebrated the success of the final field work in Sydney. After that, we slowly moved the activities to Daintree rainforest conservation are, where our experiment doesn’t do especially well (25 of 540 treatments are gone). I call them dancing cages – they dance because they were suppose to be gone in March, instead we are removing them from the forest 6 months later.
In the mean time in Papua New Guinea, Kore and Bonny (on picture) finalized the first short experiment with birds and bats exclosure and set the large experiment and they are scanning the leaves for us. Next week, both of them shall leave to Mt. Wilhelm to resurvey birds, bats and place dendrometers to trees.
