We have a lot of things going on here in Ecuador. My field assistants (Will and Marisa) along with a Cornell PhD candidate (Erin Larson) are trying to get things rolling here in Ecuador. We are surveying multiple sites, conducting excretion measurements on insects, and trying to do growth experiments along an elevation/temperature gradient. However, it has been pouring rain on us everyday! Wish us the best in trying to make this field season work.
