Brazil, again

Just arrived from Brazil

I’m just arrived from a trip to Brazil. This time Mauro is in Stanford university, so I was doing field work in Ilha de Cardoso ‘bem soazinho’, working with spatial patterns of recruitment in the palm Euterpe edulis, one of our favorite species there. In addition I went to Parque Estadual Carlos Botelho where I keep taking data on palmito regeneration. Briefly, I was aiming at characterizing the recruitment microhabitats of palmito in these two locations of Atlantic rainforest. I was using hemispherical photographs as well as direct measurements of site traits. In Cardoso I also worked with mapping of seedling, sapling, and adult spatial patterns.
