Hi Colin,

I am not aware that there are any consistent phenological data form Brunei or Sarawak, other than those from Lambir to which Shoko refers.

Sorry about the blank email - Yahoo and FRC still aren't getting on

I tried to send an email asking about how far back in time do we want to go.

I am currently working thru - the Sabah Forestry departments research plot data - as part of my attempt to generate a database on Dipt distribution in Sabah for high resolution niche modeling/conservation assessment work. Some of the RP data are seedling recruitment and phenology studies from the 60s.

Peter would have a better idea - but I assume similar sort of data would be available for Brunei and Sarawak.
