The Secret Life of Transects

This is what it looks like when you are 2.5 hours walk from a village in a mixed dipterocarp forest of Western Borneo and the transect runs through a recently cleared field, or ladang. The Dayak fellow with the basket on his back in the center of the photo (see Field Assistant) is about 20 m from where we started the plot, i.e. where the two Dayaks are waiting in the foreground - in the shade, and he is getting ready to set a plot stake. I stepped back to take the photo knowing that this plot wouldn't take very long.  Nothing to count or measure here.  Just so you know.
