Just what it says. Kate Armstrong and I gave a day-long training workshop at the Htamanthi Wildlife Sanctuary after we finished the fieldwork. Basic concepts, inventory, growth measurement, and botanical collecting methodologies, and the results from the work we just finished. Image above shows participants (enthusiastically) using a clinometer to measure the commercial height of a teak tree (Tectona grandis L.f.) planted on the grounds. They then fitted a growth band around the tree. Love their hats.
