They estimate it was 200-300 years old. It’s so heartbreaking to see this majestic tree on the ground, even if due to natural causes. You can see it in all its glory in the Jungles episode in Planet Earth II, at ~12:05 here:

The jabillo tree fell a couple of months ago (along with several hundred other trees) during a wind storm, and a piece of it had been cleared from the trail to allow access to the forest. It’s always amazing to see all the adversities the has to endure 2/2

Live from the field: caught a small break in the thunderstorms to collect plants within the forest this morning. Newly fallen trees, but more amazingly, a gigantic chunk of a previously fallen jabillo tree was moved by the water to block the trail again 1/2

Gracias Luis! Quien sabe, pero a veces pienso lo mismo ya que me ha pasado varias veces (bajas capturas en noches en las que luego llueve fuerte). Tal vez sienten el cambio de presión ambiental o temperatura? Por otro lado, hay otros factores que considerar. Saludos!

The thunderstorms continue. Part of the station grounds are now flooded and the river station has been evacuated. We’re safe and dry in our cabin, but no collecting until the downpour stops and we can get to the lab ⛈🤷🏽‍♀️

Last night we had a nice number of bats, even though they did not care much for our experimental samples. Still, negative results are interesting and useful data!

Releasing one of the juveniles. We only use adults in our behavioral experiments. Good bye buddy! 🦇

Live from the field: Where are the bats?! Empty nets and only a few juveniles tonight, which we released. We’re targeting a common species (Carollia), but this shows you that every night in the field is unpredictable!

Bird bags for bats! 😀 Unfortunately, bat(man)-themed fabrics are dark, so not ideal for collecting poop samples. These flamingo bags are a compromise between functionality and fabulousness.
