That’s great news — i hope some there’s seedlings as a result!
If any of the students are ever interested in extending a time series, i’ve got all the data still from 25 yrs ago for a bunch of seedling plots at 3 distances from trees of 4 spp of Shorea. It is a relatively easy sampling design, and it would be cool to compare the density of seedlings from the recent mast (i suspect they’ll be obvious — cotyledon leaves, height, fresh leaves, etc) to the density of existing seedlings
Anyway, more importantly, happy Mardi Gras. The party is in full swing down here. Honestly if you’re here you can’t believe it isn’t on the news every night everywhere.

The orangutan research team just confirmed last week that a huge fruit abundance peak had just occurred around Jan-Feb, with many durians, rambutans, etc etc, as well as Shoreas fruiting. Seems to have been the real deal.
