[chuck] in Science, Son Thanh Nature Reserve, rattan collectors

Yesterday we ran some rattan inventory transects in the Son Thanh Nature Reserve in Quang Nam Province of Vietnam. About thirty minutes down the trail from Tabhing commune we passed several local collectors coming out of the forest. [NOTE: I tried to pick up a bundle of rattan like the man was carrying - and failed. Don't even want to think about carrying that huge plank].
