  • NOTEBY J.Longino: cloud forest, ex sifted leaf litter, 1540m, Brillante trail just past Ventana, ground. Mid-morning, bright sunny day; elfin forest. A pair of sift samples were taken, one from the ground and one from the canopy of an emergent Clusia alata tree. Each sample filled two hanging sacks. The ground sample was difficult to obtain. The ground was sodden and clayey. Material in the sift sack gummed up into balls too large to go through the mesh. Thus, a full sack was not obtained. The canopy material - organic mater under moss clumps - sifted much more easily, and was drier. A similar quantity of siftate to the ground sample was obtained. Collection site about 10m high. Samples were transported in pillow cases and tranfered to hanging sacks by 4:00PM.
