I never wear gloves when I'm doing fieldwork. Too hot, and maybe I have a feeling that they actually separate me from the organism that I am measuring, collecting, or putting a tag on. Rattans are different. Got the gloves shown above for use during the rattan survey in the Hukaung Valley. I was fearless about grabbing rattan with these gloves. I thought the orange color would help me not lose them.  It worked. [NOTE: The rattan that I am holding, fearlessly, is Calamus palustris Griff.]
