Below are protocols I've developed for various aspects of my research. I have posted them here for the purposes of transparency, and hopefully, for saving others time when working out the more mundane aspects of data collection. Nevertheless, these documents represent working drafts and are likely to be periodically updated. While these documents are applicable to most plants and ecological settings, they were written with the intent of sampling the living collections at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Where appropriate, I have included R-scripts. Hard-copy data sheets associated with each protocol are available upon email request. As always, please feel free to contact me with any comments or concerns you may have.
