[chuck] in Science, Tapajós Arapiuns Extractive Reserve, forest inventory

The blackboard during one of the first community meetings in the Tapajós project (see Tapajós-Arapiuns). Shows a list of the timber species that the villagers want to include in the forest inventory. Can't remember what the circles and astericks mean, or why some species, e.g. ipê and morototó, have both. I also can't remember the signficance of the line drawing to the lower right. Keep the transects on bearing so they don't cross the previous survey line? Pace back from a tree to measure its height? And the dotted semi-circle? [NOTE: Everything seemed so clear at the time].
