Counting Uvos

Elysa counts and maps "uvos" (Spondias mombin L.) seedlings under one of her sample trees in the Peruvian Amazon in 1985 (see Yield Studies, The Water Was Up To Here, and The Importance of Looking Down). There is so much that I like about this photo. The painted blue tips on the stakes used to grid the area under the crown of the tree. The metal clipboard. The clunky, heavy, yet locally-produced, rubber boots. Elysa's haircut. The huge machete (marked with red bandana) that she is carrying with such insouciance. [NOTE: I still have that clipboard].
