Tools of the Trade

We gave each of the field crews in the Selva Maya growth study (see Selva Maya III) a little plastic lunch box (available at OfficeMax in Chetumal) full of stainless steel strapping and extension springs. These items are what you need to make dendrometer bands (as shown here) to precisely measure tree growth.

A dendrometer band is custom-made for each sample tree in the field. Lot of opening and closing of the plastic lunch box, but they held up very well (thx, OfficeMax).
