Spent the entire morning entering growth data into long spreadsheets. Probably have a somewhat glazed-over, monochromatic look on my face. Like that on the three sitters in George Segal's "Three Figures and Four Benches" from the Lila Acheson wing at the Met. Sharing the bench, but not the reality. [NOTE: The growth data are from six commercial species of rattan collected over a four year period from community forests in Laos and Cambodia. Paper forthcoming].
